MEMORANDUM

Posted: December 14, 2016 12:25 PM
From: Representative Harry Readshaw
To: All House members
Subject: Co-sponsorship: Involuntary commitment for D&A treatment
 
Upon our return, I plan on re-introducing HB1692 which would provide for involuntary commitment for drug & alcohol treatment.

Pennsylvania families are the front lines of the opiate epidemic in this Commonwealth. In an effort to provide families with another avenue of resources, I will be introducing Legislation which would allow for involuntary commitment for drug and alcohol abuse. This will be an added to the arsenal of resources already available to families. This legislation is based on the Ohio "Casey's" law and the Florida "Jennifer's" law. This legislation was requested by my friend/constituent who recently lost his son, Matthew, because of drug overdoses.

Please join me in Cosponsoring this legislation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly or call my staff, Margaret Tricarico at 717-772-5568 or mtricari@pahouse.net.

Thank you!
