California sets the stage for a worldwide treatment revolution.

“We are no longer going to stand by while our brothers, sisters, daughters, and sons die from a treatable disease,” says Pete Nielsen, CEO of the California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP). 

This week, CCAPP introduced what is called the California Comprehensive Addiction Recovery Act (C-CARA), which covers four main areas (pillars) aimed at making addiction treatment available to all Californians: 

  • Physical capacity expansion

  • Workforce capacity expansion

  • Workforce professionalism

  • Payment reform and stigma reduction

 Readers may access the details of C-CARA HERE . The full details will be published in the March issue of Counselor, the official publication of CCAPP. For more information about CCARA go to
