Money from the Alcoholic Beverage and Substance Abuse Enforcement and Treatment Restricted Account is distributed yearly to counties and municipalities as spelled out in statute 32b-2-4. The Legislature intends for this money to be used in a balanced approach to reducing the harmful effects of substance abuse, overconsumption of alcoholic products by adults, and alcohol consumption by minors. To this end, the Legislature encourages municipalities and counties receiving money under this part to use the most effective formula allocation to fund evidence-based and evidence-informed prevention programs.
