SENATE BILL 5763, The Omnibus Treatment of Mental and Substance Abuse Disorders Act of 2005 provided expanded funding for alcohol or other drug (AOD) treatment of approximately $32 million for adults and $6.7 million for youth. The adult expansion was targeted for adults on Medicaid and General Assistance and was funded primarily by assumed savings in medical and long-term care costs. Youth expansion funds were earmarked for adolescents in households with income below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. Evaluations monitoring the progress toward expansion targets are conducted. Get the latest here.
