Nothing in this section 37 shall be deemed to diminish the rights, privileges, or remedies of any 38 employee under any other law or regulation or under any collective 39 bargaining agreement or employment contract. 40 § 5. Section 7.01 of the mental hygiene law, as added by chapter 978 41 of the laws of 1977, is amended to read as follows: 42 § 7.01 Declaration of policy. 43 The state of New York and its local governments have a responsibility 44 for the prevention and early detection of mental [ illness] health disor- 45 ders and for the comprehensively planned care, treatment [ and], rehabil- 46 itation and recovery of [ their mentally ill citizens] individuals with a 47 mental health diagnosis. 48 Therefore, it shall be the policy of the state to conduct research and 49 to develop programs which further prevention and early detection of 50 mental [ illness] health disorders; to develop a comprehensive, inte- 51 grated system of treatment [ and], rehabilitative and recovery services 52 for [ the mentally ill] individuals with a mental health diagnosis. Such 53 a system should include, whenever possible, the provision of necessary 54 treatment services to people in their home communities; it should assure 55 the adequacy and appropriateness of residential arrangements for people 56 in need of service; and it should rely upon improved programs of insti- S. 5084--C 6 1 tutional care only when necessary and appropriate. Further, such a 2 system should recognize the important therapeutic roles of all disci- 3 plines which may contribute to the care or treatment of [ the mentally4 ill] individuals with a mental health diagnosis, such as psychology, 5 social work, psychiatric nursing, special education and other disci- 6 plines in the field of mental illness, as well as psychiatry and should 7 establish accountability for implementation of the policies of the state 8 with regard to the care [ and], rehabilitation and recovery of [ the9 mentally ill] individuals with a mental health diagnosis. 10 To facilitate the implementation of these policies and to further 11 advance the interests of [ the mentally ill] individuals with a mental 12 health diagnosis and their families, a new autonomous agency to be known 13 as the office of addiction and mental health services has been estab- 14 lished by this article. The office and its commissioner shall plan and 15 work with local governments, voluntary agencies and all providers and 16 consumers of mental health services in order to develop an effective, 17 integrated, comprehensive system for the delivery of all services to 18 [ the mentally ill] individuals with a mental health diagnosis and to 19 create financing procedures and mechanisms to support such a system of 20 services to ensure that [ mentally ill] persons in need of services 21 receive appropriate care, treatment and rehabilitation close to their 22 families and communities. In carrying out these responsibilities, the 23 office and its commissioner shall make full use of existing services in 24 the community including those provided by voluntary organizations. 25 § 6. Section 19.01 of the mental hygiene law, as added by chapter 223 26 of the laws of 1992, is amended to read as follows: 27 § 19.01 Declaration of policy. 28 The legislature declares the following: 29 [ Alcoholism] Unhealthy alcohol use, substance [ abuse] use disorder and 30 chemical dependence pose major health and social problems for individ- 31 uals and their families when left untreated, including family devas- 32 tation, homelessness, [ and] unemployment, and death. It has been proven 33 that successful prevention [ and], integrated treatment, and sustained 34 recovery can dramatically reduce costs to the health care, criminal 35 justice and social welfare systems. 36 The tragic, cumulative and often fatal consequences of [ alcoholism] 37 unhealthy alcohol use and substance [ abuse] use disorder are, however, 38 preventable and treatable disabilities that require a coordinated and 39 multi-faceted network of services. 40 The legislature recognizes locally planned and implemented prevention 41 as a primary means to avert the onset of [ alcoholism] unhealthy alcohol 42 use and substance [ abuse] use disorder. It is the policy of the state to 43 promote comprehensive, age appropriate education for children and youth 44 and stimulate public awareness of the risks associated with [ alcoholism] 45 unhealthy alcohol use and substance [ abuse] use disorder. Further, the 46 legislature acknowledges the need for a coordinated state policy for the 47 establishment of prevention [ and], treatment, and recovery programs 48 designed to address the problems of chemical dependency among youth, 49 including prevention and intervention efforts in school and community- 50 based programs designed to identify and refer high risk youth in need of 51 chemical dependency services. 52 Substantial benefits can be gained through [ alcoholism] unhealthy 53 alcohol use and substance [ abuse] use disorder treatment for both 54 addicted individuals and their families. Positive treatment outcomes 55 that may be generated through a complete continuum of care offer a cost 56 effective and comprehensive approach to [ rehabilitating] treating such S. 5084--C 7 1 individuals. The primary goals of the [ rehabilitation] treatment and 2 recovery process are to [ restore] rebuild social, family, lifestyle, 3 vocational and economic supports by stabilizing an individual's physical 4 and psychological functioning. The legislature recognizes the impor- 5 tance of varying treatment approaches and levels of care designed to 6 meet each [ client's] individual's needs. [ Relapse] Reoccurrence 7 prevention and aftercare are two primary components of treatment that 8 serve to promote and maintain recovery. 9 The legislature recognizes that the distinct treatment needs of 10 special populations, including women and women with children, persons 11 with HIV infection, persons [ diagnosed] with a mental [ illness] health 12 diagnosis, persons who [ abuse] misuse chemicals, the homeless and veter- 13 ans with posttraumatic stress disorder, merit particular attention. It 14 is the intent of the legislature to promote effective interventions for 15 such populations in need of particular attention. The legislature also 16 recognizes the importance of family support for individuals in alcohol 17 or substance [ abuse] use disorder treatment and recovery. Such family 18 participation can provide lasting support to the recovering individual 19 to [ prevent relapse and maintain] support sustained recovery. The inter- 20 generational cycle of chemical dependency within families can be inter- 21 cepted through appropriate interventions. 22 The state of New York and its local governments have a responsibility 23 in coordinating the delivery of [ alcoholism] unhealthy alcohol use and 24 substance [ abuse] use disorder services, through the entire network of 25 service providers. To accomplish these objectives, the legislature 26 declares that the establishment of a single, unified office of [ alcohol-27 ism and substance abuse] addiction and mental health services will 28 provide an integrated framework to plan, oversee and regulate the 29 state's prevention and treatment network. In recognition of the growing 30 trends and incidence of chemical dependency, this consolidation allows 31 the state to respond to the changing profile of chemical dependency. 32 The legislature recognizes that some distinctions exist between the 33 [ alcoholism] unhealthy alcohol use and substance [ abuse] use disorder 34 field and the mental health field and where appropriate, those 35 distinctions may be preserved. Accordingly, it is the intent of the 36 state to establish one office of [ alcoholism and substance abuse] 37 addiction and mental health services in furtherance of a comprehensive 38 service delivery system. 39 § 7. Upon or prior to January 1, 2023, the governor may nominate an 40 individual to serve as commissioner of the office of addiction and 41 mental health services. If such individual is confirmed by the senate 42 prior to January 1, 2023, they shall become the commissioner of the 43 office of addiction and mental health services. The governor may desig- 44 nate a person to exercise the powers of the commissioner of the office 45 of addiction and mental health services on an acting basis, until 46 confirmation of a nominee by the senate, who is hereby authorized to 47 take such actions as are necessary and proper to implement the orderly 48 transition of the functions, powers as duties as herein provided, 49 including the preparation for a budget request for the office as estab- 50 lished by this act. 51 § 8. Upon the transfer pursuant to this act of the functions and 52 powers possessed by and all of the obligations and duties of the office 53 of mental health and the office of addiction services and supports as 54 established pursuant to the mental hygiene law and other laws, to the 55 office of addiction and mental health services as prescribed by this 56 act, provision shall be made for the transfer of all employees from the S. 5084--C 8 1 office of mental health and the office of addiction services and 2 supports into the office of addiction and mental health services. 3 Employees so transferred shall be transferred without further examina- 4 tion or qualification to the same or similar titles and shall remain in 5 the same collective bargaining units and shall retain their respective 6 civil service classifications, status, and rights pursuant to their 7 collective bargaining units and collective bargaining agreements. 8 § 9. Notwithstanding any contrary provision of law, on or before Octo- 9 ber 1, 2022 and annually thereafter, the office of addiction and mental 10 health services, in consultation with the department of health, shall 11 issue a report, and post such report on their public website, detailing 12 the office's expenditures for addiction and mental health services, 13 including total Medicaid spending directly by the state to licensed or 14 designated providers and payments to managed care providers pursuant to 15 section 364-j of the social services law. The office of addiction and 16 mental health services shall examine reports produced pursuant to this 17 section and may make recommendations to the governor and the legislature 18 regarding appropriations for addiction and mental health services or 19 other provisions of law which may be necessary to effectively implement 20 the creation and continued operation of the office. 21 § 10. Any financial saving realized from the creation of the office of 22 addiction and mental health services shall be reinvested in the services 23 and supports funded by such office. 24 § 11. Severability. If any clause, sentence, paragraph, section or 25 part of this act shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdic- 26 tion to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair or invalidate 27 the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in its operation to the 28 clause, sentence, paragraph, section or part thereof directly involved 29 in the controversy in which such judgment shall have been rendered. 30 § 12. This act shall take effect immediately. Effective immediately, 31 the office of mental health and the office of addiction services and 32 supports are authorized to promulgate the addition, amendment and/or 33 repeal of any rule or regulation or engage in any work necessary for the 34 implementation of this act on its effective date authorized to be made 35 and completed on or before such effective date.
