Alcohol and Drug Treatment Funding Petition

by James Heller 18. August 2009 07:14
Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles continues the effort to keep alcohol and drug treatment services alive in California for the less fortunate.  We support the use of petitions and letters to keep State Representatives aware of voters’ wishes.  And we urge you to continue signing petitions and sending letters until our state leaders make a commitment to alcoholism and drug addiction treatment funding.

Change.org has posted a petition and letter on their website.  Here is the link:
http://www.change.org/actions/view/save_substance_abuse_treatment_in_california

The goal for the petition is 5,000 signatures.  By posting the link on our website, we hope that all of our visitors, their friends, and their families, will make this goal possible.  The suggested letter can be copied and pasted into an email to your State Legislators and the Governor.

So please sign the petition and send a few letters, and get others to do the same.  If you do not know how to contact your representatives, go to this link:
http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/yourleg.html

The issue of funding for alcohol and drug treatment in California is too important to sit back and see what happens.  Action must be taken by all who care.  It is also important to note that these programs actually bring a net savings to the California budget.

More details can be found on our website blog California Budget Issues category.  Change.org also posted the summary below.

-- Begin external content --

Substance abuse treatment and prevention is underfunded.  We are facing the elimination of Proposition 36 (The Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act 2000) this year.  This historic act was passed overwhelmingly by the voters of California.  It provided for treatment instead of incarceration for thousands of Californians and it has proven to be successful and cost effective.  Treatment is an effective way of reducing crime, it costs less to treat someone than it does to send them to jail or prison; it produces clean and sober individuals who then become taxpaying citizens; it reduces health care and public assistance costs.  For every dollar invested in treatment we save $7.  Most important it saves lives, families and communities from the devastation of drug abuse and alcoholism.  Estimates are that one in ten people suffer from alcoholism or an addiction and that every addict affects 10 others directly.  By offering treatment we help reduce the negative effects of this disease and its' effect on society.
