ORS 430.338
Purposes of laws related to alcoholism

The purposes of ORS 430.338 (Purposes of laws related to alcoholism) to 430.380 (Mental Health Alcoholism and Drug Services Account) are:


To encourage local units of government to provide treatment and rehabilitation services to persons suffering from alcoholism;


To foster sound local planning to address the problem of alcoholism and its social consequences;


To promote a variety of treatment and rehabilitation services for alcoholics designed to meet the therapeutic needs of diverse segments of a community’s population, recognizing that no single approach to alcoholism treatment and rehabilitation is suitable to every individual;


To increase the independence and ability of individuals recovering from alcoholism to lead satisfying and productive lives, thereby reducing continued reliance upon therapeutic support;


To ensure sufficient emphasis upon the unique treatment and rehabilitation needs of minorities; and


To stimulate adequate evaluation of alcoholism treatment and rehabilitation programs. [1977 c.856 §1; 2011 c.673 §20]
Note: 430.338 (Purposes of laws related to alcoholism) and 430.342 (Local planning committees) were enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but were not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 430 or any series therein by legislative action.
