Mental Health, Addictions, and Developmental Disabilities – Citizen's Advisory Committee
The Mental Health, Addictions, and Developmental Disabilities Advisory Committee (MHADDAC) was formed in the fall of 2000. This committee was created from the merger of the Mental Health Citizen's Advisory Board and the Local Alcohol and Drug Planning Committee. This merger was brought about to establish an advisory board structure that reflects the structure within the Health Department – an integrated Alcohol and Drug, and Mental Health Program.
MHADDAC meets the first Tuesday of every month from 5:15 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. in the Siletz Conference Room (2nd floor) at the Benton County Health Department. The committee works on identifying community needs, gaps in services, and advises both the health department and the County Board of Commissioners. Annually the committee provides formal recommendations regarding services to the Board of Commissioners.
