In 1954 the Alcoholic Rehabilitation Commission was created to investigate and study all phases of the treatment and rehabilitation of alcoholics and other factors necessary to the reduction and prevention of chronic alcoholism and other excessive uses of alcohol. The commission periodically reported to the Governor and the Legislature with recommendations. The Division of Alcoholic Rehabilitation was established in the State Department of Public Health on September 11, 1957, with the passage by the Legislature of Assembly Bill 3117. This measure transferred to the department the activities of the Alcoholic Rehabilitation Commission, which was abolished.
