Demmer Seeks to Get State Act Up With the Times
0 0

State Representative Tom Demmer wants the state to take a hard look at the Substance Use Disorder Act to make sure the wording and use of the act does not fall behind the times.

Demmer said he has been working closely with the Department of Human Services to update the act. He said Tuesday there has been many changes since the act began.

The Representative from Dixon said it is important to modernize the act so best practices are being used.

Demmer said the act has guided the Department of Human Services for many years. He said there have been many changes in the approach in dealing with substance abuse as well as the terminology.

The bill was given approval from the committee and now heads to the full house for consideration.
