San Francisco Substance Abuse Programs, Proposition T (November 2008)
Proposition T requires the San Francisco Department of Public Health to provide an annual report to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors assessing the demand for substance abuse treatment programs. It must also present a plan to meet whatever level of demand it has detected.
Under Proposition T, the San Francisco Department of Public Health is required to maintain an adequate level of free and low-cost substance abuse treatment services and residential treatment capacity sufficient to meet existing demand.
