For over 30 years, the Department of Alcohol & Drug Programs (ADP) has been California's authority on substance abuse prevention and treatment. ADP's responsibilities range from licensing and certification of providers to delivering strategies and standards throughout the state. It is designated as the single state agency responsible for administering and coordinating the State's efforts in alcohol and drug abuse prevention, treatment, and recovery services. The Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act (SACPA) required ADP to rapidly implement statewide policy, forcing it into a period of dynamic change. Recognizing that its future success would depend, to a large degree, on its ability to effectively manage and apply information, ADP partnered with Delegata to help meet the challenge.
