Local Services Bulletins

OASAS has undertaken a review of our Local Service Bulletins (LSB) to ensure that they are accurate and up to date. The result of that review is that we are reissuing only those LSBs that reflect the current policy of OASAS. All other LSBs have been repealed.

Should you have any questions please contact

All active Local Services Bulletins (LSBs) issued by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) are available through the links to the left.

An identifying number, the topic of the bulletin, the audience (local service provider group or subgroup) that the bulletin is intended to reach, and the date the bulletin was issued is provided for each bulletin.

For easy reference there is a search feature at the top of the page.

Several of the Local Services Bulletins have attachments that are available as ".pdf" files that may be downloaded for viewing and printing by using Adobe(R) Acrobat(R) Reader. If you do not have the Acrobat Reader, you can download a free copy by clicking the icon below.

Some of the bulletins have been edited to make them more suitable for electronic format. For example, many of the attachments are accessible by clicking on the name of the referenced document; this approach is also used for references to prior or succeeding sections of a bulletin. Please note that all attachments for these older bulletins may not be available electronically because the size or format of the document did not lend itself to conversion to electronic form. If you have a compelling need for these attachments, please contact the OASAS Management Services Unit in Albany.
