The department shall coordinate state and local alcohol and other drug abuse prevention, care, treatment, and rehabilitation programs. It is the intent of the Legislature that the department and the counties maintain a cooperative partnership to assure effective implementation of this chapter.


The Legislature grants responsibility to the county to administer and coordinate all county alcohol and other drug programs funded under this part. County alcohol and other drug programs shall account to the board of supervisors and to the state for their effective implementation. The county shall establish its own priorities for alcohol and other drug programs funded under this part, except with respect to funds that are allocated to the county for federally required programs and services.
