Every substance use disorder treatment program has its own unique characteristics and every local
jurisdiction in California interprets and enforces health guidelines, as it sees fit, to prevent the spread of
disease. Unfortunately, this can lead to confusion and questioning as to the best way to protect clients,
staff, and families during the pandemic. As the industry representative in California, CCAPP has compiled
the numerous guidelines and recommendations, from both government and health organizations, to
provide SUD treatment programs with a concise document to assist them with determining â€œbest
practicesâ€ during an outbreak of contagious disease.
