Panel Urges More Drug Treatment

From Staff and Wire Reports

The Little Hoover Commission said California should expand drug treatment programs for those in need and make them available to more people.

The commission, a public agency that recommends changes to improve efficiency in state programs, suggested that drug prevention, treatment and enforcement efforts be better coordinated. The panel said that people are routinely denied publicly funded treatment and that few programs are available to young people.
