LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2772, as introduced, Chang. Drug treatment programs.
Existing law requires certain defendants to participate in a drug treatment program when, among other things, under a deferred entry of judgment program, as a condition of probation, and as a condition of parole.
Existing law prohibits a person, firm, partnership, association, corporation, or local governmental entity from operating, establishing, managing, conducting, or maintaining an alcoholism or drug abuse recovery or treatment facility to provide recovery, treatment, or detoxification services within this state without first obtaining a current valid license from the State Department of Health Care Services.
This bill would require a person seeking treatment at an alcoholism and drug abuse recovery or treatment facility because he or she has been ordered or required to participate in a drug treatment program pursuant to the Penal Code to seek treatment from an alcoholism and drug abuse recovery or treatment facility that is licensed by the State Department of Health Care Services and in compliance with the local laws where the facility is located.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
