Audit Recommends Improvement In Ballot Measure 110 Rollout

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon Secretary of State has released an audit of how Ballot Measure 110 is being implemented. The voter approved measure decriminalized drug use and required the Oregon Health Authority to establish drug treatment facilities around the state. The audit recommends creation of a plan by September that details how the program will be integrated into the state's behavioral health system. It also recommends the establishment of a way to measure progress as well as a way to develop better policies and procedures for giving grants to treatment centers. The Oregon Health Authority has been criticized for taking over two years to get the program in operation.
