Announcements

Effective with the passage of the 2013-2014 Budget Act and associated legislation, the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs was eliminated July 1, 2013, and OPG transitioned to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. CDPH executed the successful transition of OPG from DADP. OPG continues to fulfill its mission under CDPH, administering prevention and treatment programs for problem and pathological gamblers and their families. Welfare and Institutions Code Section 4369.5 requires OPG to generate an annual Transition Legislative Report for five years.
