Governor gets 4 bills that would crack down on addiction treatment scams, raise standards
 
CSAM’s co-sponsored bill, AB-920 (Petrie-Norris), is on the Governor’s desk to sign. This bill would require outpatient centers, which are now unsupervised by the state, to be licensed, regulated, and to adopt treatment criteria set by ASAM as the minimum standard of care. Also on the Governor’s desk:

AB-919 (Petrie-Norris) - would crack down on financial conflicts-of-interest among rehab operators

SB-589 (Bates) - would prohibit rehabs and sober homes from making false or misleading advertising statements

AB-290 (Wood) - would remove the financial incentive for treatment providers to lure people to California by promising “free” insurance coverage
