The Alcohol and Drug Policy Commission (the ADPC) is established to coordinate Oregon’s priorities and policies related to alcohol and other drug prevention and treatment services.
The ADPC will recommend strategic action to:
Promote the effective and efficient use of resources.
Reduce unnecessary administrative requirements.
Improve client care.
Improve and ensure the fidelity of evidence-based treatment practices.
Improve alcohol and drug prevention and treatment programs.
Ensure the accountability of publicly funded programs.
Establish high-level, statewide performance measures for drug prevention and treatment.
Advance the science of alcohol and drug prevention and treatment.
The Alcohol and Drug Policy Commission was created by the Oregon Legislature [ORS 430.241 and ORS 430.242]. Other state laws give the Commission additional authority in relation to other state departments.
