Concerning the regulation of methadone treatment facilities.
Session:
2016 Regular Session
Subject:
Human Services
Bill Summary

Current law requires the unit within the department of human services that administers behavioral health programs and services (unit) to establish standards for facilities that treat drug abusers or dispense controlled substances to drug abusers. The bill requires additional standards for methadone treatment facilities, including minimum distances for such facilities from schools, colleges, and residential child care facilities and a disclosure of infractions by the owner of the facility, its holding company, or other facilities under the holding company. If infractions are disclosed, the unit shall determine whether the public interest requires denial of an application or other remedial action.

The bill also specifies that a methadone treatment facility is not a medical clinic for zoning purposes.
