Legislation Regulating Rehabilitation Homes Clears State Legislature
Measure Moves to Governor Brown’s Desk for Signature
SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Allan Mansoor’s (R- Costa Mesa) Assembly Bill 2374, alcohol and drug residential rehabilitation home measure passed out of the Legislature with unanimous bipartisan support. AB 2374 now heads to the Governor for his signature.
“There have been a lot of problems with how rehab homes operate and this bill is a first step towards increased accountability,” said Mansoor.
AB 2374 requires deaths that occur at licensed residential treatment facilities to be reported to the Department of Health Care Services in a timely manner; it also requires private organizations that register or certify substance abuse counselors to verify that an applicant has not had another registration or certification revoked.
Assemblyman Mansoor proudly represents Orange County’s 74th Assembly District, which includes the cities of Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, and large portions of Huntington Beach and Irvine.
