BILL NUMBER:S7650

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the mental hygiene law, in relation to the heroin and opioid
addiction wraparound services demonstration program; and providing for
the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE:
To create a demonstration program to provide wraparound services to
adolescents and adults who have entered and successfully complete
treatment programs.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends the public health law by adding a new section 22.13
which requires the commissioner of the department of health in
consultation with the office of alcoholism and substance abuse
services and office of mental health to create a wraparound services
demonstration program which will provide these services to
adolescents and adults for nine months after the successful
completion of a treatment program. These services shall be in the
form of case management or referral services and include but not
limited to:

* Education;
* Peer to peer support groups;
* Social services and family services and counseling;
* Employment support and counseling;
* Transportation assistance;
* Medical services;
* Legal services;
* Financial services; and
* Childcare services.

Section 2 is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Wraparound services generally refer to a complete and comprehensive
method of providing services to have the greatest impact on the
individual who is receiving such services. This legislation would
require the office of alcoholism and substance abuse services to
expand their existing case management services and to build
relationships in communities across the state to provide services
that will allow for them to
provide services to their clients that will greatly improve their
quality of life and greatly reduce the likelihood of a person
relapsing.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately and shall expire and be deemed repealed three years after
such effective date.
