Ventura County | IN BRIEF / COUNTYWIDE

Progress Report on Drug Treatment Law

April 09, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

Ventura County's Behavioral Health Department will present a progress report Wednesday on how Proposition 36 is working.

The law, passed in November 2000, lets certain nonviolent drug offenders receive substance-abuse treatment rather than jail time. Since July, hundreds in the county have received such treatment.

Representatives from Ventura County Superior Court, the district attorney's and public defender's offices, and the probation and behavioral health agencies will attend the community meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Poinsettia Pavilion, 3451 Foothill Road, Ventura. For information, call 652-3283.
