About Michael Weiner
Two California Assembly Members have proposed bills that would regulate sober homes. AB 2255 would require sober homes to have a live-in manager, operator, or owner and would require clients to participate in “legitimate programs of recovery.” The California Department of Health Care Services (“the Department”) would be charged with investigations, sanctions, and disciplinary actions. AB 2403 would authorize the Department to deny permits for treatment facilities within 300 feet of other facilities.
