SUBSTANCE ABUSE-MOMS TREATMENT                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act. Requires the      
   Department of Children and Family Services to require substance  abuse      
   assessments of women whose children have been temporarily removed from      
   their custody.  Requires that the assessments be conducted by licensed      
   programs selected by the Department of Human Services, as successor to      
   the  Department  of  Alcoholism  and  Substance  Abuse.    If DCFS has      
   petitioned the court to limit  custody,  provides  that  the  licensed      
   program   shall   report   the   assessment   results   and  treatment      
   recommendation  to  the  court,  which  then  may  require   treatment      
   participation  as  a  condition  precedent  to  regaining or retaining      
   custody.  If DCFS has  not  petitioned  the  court,  permits  DCFS  to      
   require   treatment  participation  as  part  of  family  preservation      
          FISCAL NOTE (DASA)                                                   
          Total projected cost would be $29,655,000.
