The purposes of ORS 430.306, 430.338 to 430.380, 471.810, 473.030 and 473.050 are:

(1) To encourage local units of government to provide treatment and rehabilitation services to persons suffering from alcoholism;

(2) To foster sound local planning to address the problem of alcoholism and its social consequences;

(3) To promote a variety of treatment and rehabilitation services for alcoholics designed to meet the therapeutic needs of diverse segments of a community’s population, recognizing that no single approach to alcoholism treatment and rehabilitation is suitable to every individual;

(4) To increase the independence and ability of individuals recovering from alcoholism to lead satisfying and productive lives, thereby reducing continued reliance upon therapeutic support;

(5) To insure sufficient emphasis upon the unique treatment and rehabilitation needs of minorities; and

(6) To stimulate adequate evaluation of alcoholism treatment and rehabilitation programs. [1977 c.856 §1]
