Short Description: SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER ACT
Sen. Dave Syverson
(Rep. Tom Demmer )
Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Alcoholism and Other Drug Abuse and Dependency Act. Changes the short title of the Act to the Substance Use Disorder Act. Removes the terms "addict", "addiction", "alcoholic", "alcoholism", and "substance abuse" and their corresponding definitions. Requires the Department of Human Services to reduce the incidence of substance use disorders (rather than reduce the incidence and consequences of the abuse of alcohol and other drugs). Defines "substance use disorder". Requires the Department to design, coordinate, and fund prevention, early intervention, treatment, and other recovery support services for substance use disorders that are accessible and address the needs of at-risk individuals and their families. Requires the Department to develop a comprehensive plan on the provision of such services; assist other State agencies in developing and establishing substance use disorder services for the agencies' clients; adopt medical and clinical standards on how to determine a substance use disorder diagnosis; and other matters. Contains provisions concerning the licensing of substance use disorder treatment providers; licensure categories and services; the identification of individuals who need substance use disorder treatment using "SBIRT"; patients' rights; services for pregnant women, mothers, and criminal justice clients; and other matters. Repeals a provision of the Act establishing the Committee on Women's Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatment. Repeals a provision of the Act setting forth the powers and duties of the Medical Advisory Committee. Makes conforming changes concerning the Substance Use Disorder Act to several Acts including the Department of Human Services Act, the Children and Family Services Act, and the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Administrative Act. Effective January 1, 2019.
Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Further amends the Alcoholism and Other Drug Abuse and Dependency Act. Defines the terms "designated program", "recovery", "recovery support", "substance use disorder", and "withdrawal management". Restores all references to "designated program". Requires the Department of Human Services to promulgate regulations to identify and disseminate best practice guidelines that can be utilized by publicly and privately funded programs as well as for levels of payment to government funded programs that provide prevention, early intervention, treatment, and other recovery support services for substance use disorders and those services referenced in specified provisions of the Substance Use Disorder Act. Requires the Department to identify and disseminate evidence-based best practice guidelines as maintained in administrative rule that can be utilized to determine a substance use disorder diagnosis. Requires the Department to encourage all health and disability insurance programs to include substance use disorder treatment as a covered service and to use evidence-based best practice criteria as maintained in administrative rule and as required in Public Act 99-0480 in determining the necessity for such services and continued stay (rather than to use the clinical standards adopted by the Department in determining medical necessity for such services and criteria for continuing stay). Requires the Department to post on its website a licensed provider directory updated at least quarterly. In provisions allowing an individual who is charged with or convicted of a crime to receive substance use disorder treatment from a designated program as a condition of probation, requires case management services to be delivered by the designated program. Makes other changes.
