ACC-OC's sponsored legislation, Assembly Bill 572 has advanced out of the Assembly and is now in the Senate. This bill was created by our membership, and will provide regional enforcement resources to help cities and patients work with residential alcohol and other drug treatment facilities within their communities.
CALL TO ACTION:
The legislation would create a voluntary pilot program for the cities in the County of Orange,
to fund and house a Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) Complaint Analyst to investigate local, licensed Residential Treatment Facility (RTF) complaints. The program would be
run out of the City of Costa Mesa (the Lead Agency). AB 572
would help alleviate the enforcement shortfall that is currently experienced throughout the County, and provide the highest level of care for those seeking rehabilitative services.
