Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act (Measure 110)
In November 2020, Oregon voters passed by referendum Measure 110, or the Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act. The measure’s stated goal is to establish a more health-based, equitable and effective approach to drug addiction in Oregon by shifting the response to drug possession from criminalization to treatment and recovery. Measure 110:
- Changes multiple criminal sentencing laws regulating the possession of controlled substances (PCS) and
- Requires the creation of a new fund that will cover the cost of 15 new Addiction Recovery Centers, as well as wraparound services, to be managed by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA).
