(This amendment provides $4.0 million from the general fund each year to expand the Medicaid detoxification capacity of the state. There is currently no dedicated funding stream to ensure medical facilities across the state have sufficient capacity to provide medical detoxification services. Medical detoxification is the first step for an individuals dependent on alcohol or drugs to enter treatment. This service should be provided in an appropriate setting with qualified health professional overseeing the process.)
