Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services

We are reviewing the S.C. Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services (DAODAS) to evaluate the agency’s response to the opioid crisis, its efforts to address alcohol and substance abuse cases in the wake of COVID-19, and other issues related to addiction services and administration.

We are reviewing the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control’s (DHEC) certificate of need (CON) program. Among other things, our review will address concerns relating to the impact the CON statute and regulations have on the availability and cost of healthcare, how DHEC prioritizes the goals of the CON program, and the length of time it takes to approve CON applications.
