State Funding Discontinued:  SACPA & Offender Treatment Programs

The Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act of 2000 (SACPA) provided drug treatment rather than incarceration for first- or second-time nonviolent adult drug offenders who use, possess, or transport illegal drugs for personal use. Funding for SACPA was eliminated effective July 1, 2009. The Offender Treatment Program (OTP) was established in Fiscal Year (FY) 2006-07 to enhance SACPA outcomes and accountability. It was continued for one additional year after the elimination of SACPA funding, receiving its final allocation in FY 2009-2010. OCJC maintains two related archival websites for reference purposes:

For additional information, individual counties which have provided SACPA or OTP services can be reached via contact information available on the County Alcohol and Drug Program Administrators of California ( CADPAAC) website.
