LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 75, Committee on Budget. Alcohol and drug programs.
Under existing law, the State Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs is responsible for administering prevention, treatment, and recovery services for alcohol and drug abuse and problem gambling. Existing law requires the department to issue allocations of state and federal funds available to counties to provide alcohol and other drug programs. Existing law also requires counties that utilize these funds to adopt and submit to the department a county plan and negotiated net amount contract for department review and approval or disapproval, as specified. Existing law provides that, effective July 1, 2013, the administrative and programmatic functions that were previously performed by the department are transferred to departments within the California Health and Human Services Agency. Existing law also provides that the ultimate placement of these functions is contingent upon the Budget Act of 2013 and implementing legislation.
This bill would, on July 1, 2013, transfer the administration of prevention, treatment, and recovery services for alcohol and drug abuse to the State Department of Health Care Services and services for problem gambling to the State Department of Public Health, and would make related changes. The bill would require, by April 1, 2014, and March 1 annually thereafter, until July 1, 2018, the State Department of Health Care Services and the State Department of Public Health to make specified reports on the substance use disorders services program, as provided, and on the Office of Problem and Pathological Gambling, as provided, to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee and the appropriate budget subcommittees and policy committees of the Legislature, and publicly post their reports on their respective Internet Web sites.
Existing law imposes certain requirements on the State Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs and on the Judicial Council relating to the design and implementation of specified drug court programs. Existing law also requires the department to establish community-based recovery programs to treat the problems of alcohol and other drug use among youth, as specified, and to develop and implement a statewide prevention campaign designed to deter the abuse of methamphetamine in California. Existing law authorizes the department to implement a program for the establishment of group homes for alcohol and other drug abusers, and to establish the Resident-Run Housing Revolving Fund for the purpose of making loans to group resident-run homes in conformance with federal law.
This bill would make these provisions inoperative on July 1, 2013.
Existing law requires a county that applies for funds to provide alcohol and other drug abuse to prepare and submit a contract for alcohol and other drug abuse services to the department. Under existing law, net negotiated amount contracts that are in effect on June 27, 2012, are deemed contracts for alcohol and other drug abuse services for purposes of a county’s application for these funds.
This bill would delete the provision deeming net negotiated amount contracts to be contracts for alcohol and other drug abuse services.
This bill would appropriate the sum of $2,004,000 from the Federal Trust Fund to the State Department of Health Care Services for mental health programs. The bill would make further technical, nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:

(2) Specific requirements for the temporary removal of the licensee from practice, in order to enable the licensee to undergo the clinical diagnostic evaluation described in paragraph (1) and any treatment recommended by the evaluator described in paragraph (1) and approved by the board, and specific criteria that the licensee must meet before being permitted to return to practice on a full-time or part-time basis.
(3) Specific requirements that govern the ability of the licensing board to communicate with the licensee’s employer about the licensee’s status and condition.

That agreement is deferred by the agency unless or until the licensee commits a major violation, in which case it is revived and the license is surrendered.
(11) Criteria that a licensee must meet in order to petition for return to practice on a full-time basis.
(12) Criteria that a licensee must meet in order to petition for reinstatement of a full and unrestricted license.
(13) If a board uses a private-sector vendor that provides diversion services, standards for immediate reporting by the vendor to the board of any and all noncompliance with any term of the diversion contract or probation; standards for the vendor’s approval process for providers or contractors that provide diversion services, including, but not limited to, specimen collectors, group meeting facilitators, and worksite monitors; standards requiring the vendor to disapprove and discontinue the use of providers or contractors that fail to provide effective or timely diversion services; and standards for a licensee’s termination from the program and referral to enforcement.
(14) If a board uses a private-sector vendor that provides diversion services, the extent to which licensee participation in that program shall be kept confidential from the public.
(15) If a board uses a private-sector vendor that provides diversion services, a schedule for external independent audits of the vendor’s performance in adhering to the standards adopted by the committee.
(16) Measurable criteria and standards to determine whether each board’s method of dealing with substance-abusing licensees protects patients from harm and is effective in assisting its licensees in recovering from substance abuse in the long term.

SEC. 10.

 Section 95001 of the Government Code is amended to read:

95001.
 (a) The Legislature hereby finds and declares all of the following:
(1) There is a need to provide appropriate early intervention services individually designed for infants and toddlers from birth to two years of age, inclusive, who have disabilities or are at risk of having disabilities, to enhance their development and to minimize the potential for developmental delays.
(2) Early intervention services for infants and toddlers with disabilities or who are at risk of having disabilities represent an investment of resources, in that these services reduce the ultimate costs to our society, by minimizing the need for special education and related services in later school years and by minimizing the likelihood of institutionalization. These services also maximize the ability of families to better provide for the special needs of their children. Early intervention services for infants and toddlers with disabilities maximize the potential of the individuals to be effective in the context of daily life and activities, including the potential to live independently, and exercise the full rights of citizenship. The earlier intervention is started, the greater is the ultimate cost-effectiveness and the higher is the educational attainment and quality of life achieved by children with disabilities.
(3) The family is the constant in the child’s life, while the service system and personnel within those systems fluctuate. Because the primary responsibility of an infant’s or toddler’s well-being rests with the family, services should support and enhance the family’s capability to meet the special developmental needs of their infant or toddler with disabilities.
(4) Family-to-family support strengthens families’ ability to fully participate in services planning and their capacity to care for their infants or toddlers with disabilities.
(5) Meeting the complex needs of infants with disabilities and their families requires active state and local coordinated, collaborative, and accessible service delivery systems that are flexible, culturally competent, and responsive to family-identified needs. When health, developmental, educational, and social programs are coordinated, they are proven to be cost effective, not only for systems, but for families as well.
(6) Family-professional collaboration contributes to changing the ways that early intervention services are provided and to enhancing their effectiveness.
(7) Infants and toddlers with disabilities are a part of their communities, and as citizens make valuable contributions to society as a whole.
(b) Therefore, it is the intent of the Legislature that:
(1) Funding provided under Part C of the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (20 U.S.C. Sec. 1431 et seq.) be used to improve and enhance early intervention services as defined in this title by developing innovative ways of providing family focused, coordinated services, which are built upon existing systems.
(2) The State Department of Developmental Services, the State Department of Education, the State Department of Health Care Services, and the State Department of Social Services coordinate services to infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families. These agencies need to collaborate with families and communities to provide a family-centered, comprehensive, multidisciplinary, interagency, community-based, early intervention system for infants and toddlers with disabilities.
(3) Families be well informed, supported, and respected as capable and collaborative decisionmakers regarding services for their child.
(4) Professionals be supported to enhance their training and maintain a high level of expertise in their field, as well as knowledge of what constitutes most effective early intervention practices.
(5) Families and professionals join in collaborative partnerships to develop early intervention services that meet the needs of infants and toddlers with disabilities, and that those partnerships be the basis for the development of services that meet the needs of the culturally and linguistically diverse population of California.
(6) To the maximum extent possible, infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families be provided services in the most natural environment, and include the use of natural supports and existing community resources.
(7) The services delivery system be responsive to the families and children it serves within the context of cooperation and coordination among the various agencies.
(8) Early intervention program quality be ensured and maintained through established early intervention program and personnel standards.
(9) The early intervention system be responsive to public input and participation in the development of implementation policies and procedures for early intervention services through the forum of an interagency coordinating council established pursuant to federal regulations under Part C of the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
(c) It is not the intent of the Legislature to require the State Department of Education to implement this title unless adequate reimbursement, as specified and agreed to by the department, is provided to the department from federal funds from Part C of the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

SEC. 11.

 Section 95012 of the Government Code is amended to read:

95012.
 (a) The following departments shall cooperate and coordinate their early intervention services for eligible infants and their families under this title, and need to collaborate with families and communities, to provide a family-centered, comprehensive, multidisciplinary, interagency, community-based early intervention system:
(1) State Department of Developmental Services.
(2) State Department of Education.
(3) State Department of Health Care Services.
(4) State Department of Social Services.
(b) Each participating department shall enter into an interagency agreement with the State Department of Developmental Services. Each interagency agreement shall specify, at a minimum, the agency’s current and continuing level of financial participation in providing services to infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families. Each interagency agreement shall also specify procedures for resolving disputes in a timely manner. Interagency agreements shall also contain provisions for ensuring effective cooperation and coordination among agencies concerning policymaking activities associated with the implementation of this title, including legislative proposals, regulation development, and fiscal planning. All interagency agreements shall be reviewed annually and revised as necessary.

SEC. 12.

 Section 95020 of the Government Code is amended to read:

95020.
 (a) An eligible infant or toddler shall have an individualized family service plan. The individualized family service plan shall be used in place of an individualized education program required pursuant to Sections 4646 and 4646.5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, the individualized program plan required pursuant to Section 56340 of the Education Code, or any other applicable service plan.

Written parent consent to evaluate and assess shall be obtained within the 45-day timeline. A regional center, local educational agency, or the designee of one of those entities shall initiate and conduct this meeting. Families shall be afforded the opportunity to participate in all decisions regarding eligibility and services. During intake and assessment, but no later than the IFSP meeting, the parents, legal guardian, or conservator shall provide copies of any health benefit cards under which the consumer is eligible to receive health benefits, including, but not limited to, private health insurance, a health care service plan, Medi-Cal, Medicare, and TRICARE. If the individual, or, where appropriate, the parents, legal guardians, or conservators, have no such benefits, the regional center shall not use that fact to negatively impact the services that the individual may or may not receive from the regional center.
(c) Parents shall be fully informed of their rights, including the right to invite another person, including a family member or an advocate or peer parent, or any or all of them, to accompany them to any or all individualized family service plan meetings. With parental consent, a referral shall be made to the local family resource center or network.
(d) The individualized family service plan shall be in writing and shall address all of the following:
(1) A statement of the infant’s or toddler’s present levels of physical development including vision, hearing, and health status, cognitive development, communication development, social and emotional development, and adaptive developments.
(2) With the concurrence of the family, a statement of the family’s concerns, priorities, and resources related to meeting the special developmental needs of the eligible infant or toddler.
(3) A statement of the major outcomes expected to be achieved for the infant or toddler and family where services for the family are related to meeting the special developmental needs of the eligible infant or toddler.
(4) The criteria, procedures, and timelines used to determine the degree to which progress toward achieving the outcomes is being made and whether modifications or revisions are necessary.
(5) (A) A statement of the specific early intervention services necessary to meet the unique needs of the infant or toddler as identified in paragraph (3), including, but not limited to, the frequency, intensity, location, duration, and method of delivering the services, and ways of providing services in natural generic environments, including group training for parents on behavioral intervention techniques in lieu of some or all of the in-home parent training component of the behavior intervention services, and purchase of neighborhood preschool services and needed qualified personnel in lieu of infant development programs.
(B) Effective July 1, 2009, at the time of development, review, or modification of an infant’s or toddler’s individualized family service plan, the regional center shall consider both of the following:
(i) The use of group training for parents on behavior intervention techniques, in lieu of some or all of the in-home parent training component of the behavior intervention services.
(ii) The purchase of neighborhood preschool services and needed qualified personnel, in lieu of infant development programs.
(6) A statement of the agency responsible for providing the identified services.
(7) The name of the service coordinator who shall be responsible for facilitating implementation of the plan and coordinating with other agencies and persons.
(8) The steps to be taken to ensure transition of the infant or toddler upon reaching three years of age to other appropriate services. These may include, as appropriate, special education or other services offered in natural environments.
(9) The projected dates for the initiation of services in paragraph (5) and the anticipated duration of those services.
(e) Each service identified on the individualized family service plan shall be designated as one of three types:
(1) An early intervention service, as defined in subsection (4) of Section 1432 of Title 20 of the United States Code, and applicable regulations, that is provided or purchased through the regional center, local educational agency, or other participating agency. The State Department of Health Care Services and the State Department of Social Services shall provide services in accordance with state and federal law and applicable regulations, and up to the level of funding as appropriated by the Legislature.

That information shall not be furnished, however, by any person who also provides services in a privately operated, licensed program or who has any direct interest in a privately operated, licensed program. In addition, the court shall obtain from the Department of Motor Vehicles a copy of the person’s driving record to determine whether the person is eligible to participate in a licensed 18-month or 30-month program pursuant to this chapter. When preparing a presentence report for the court, the probation department may consider the suitability of placing the defendant in a treatment program that includes the administration of nonscheduled nonaddicting medications to ameliorate an alcohol or controlled substance problem.

(1) License the establishment of narcotic treatment programs in this state to use narcotic replacement therapy in the treatment of addicted persons whose addiction was acquired or supported by the use of a narcotic drug or drugs, not in compliance with a physician and surgeon’s legal prescription, except that the Research Advisory Panel shall have authority to approve methadone or LAAM research programs. The department shall establish and enforce the criteria for the eligibility of patients to be included in the programs, program operation guidelines, such as dosage levels, recordkeeping and reporting, urinalysis requirements, take-home doses of controlled substances authorized for use pursuant to Section 11839.2, security against redistribution of the narcotic replacement drugs, and any other regulations that are necessary to protect the safety and well-being of the patient, the local community, and the public, and to carry out this chapter. A program may admit a patient to narcotic maintenance or narcotic detoxification treatment seven days after completion of a prior withdrawal treatment episode. The arrest and conviction records and the records of pending charges against any person seeking admission to a narcotic treatment program shall be furnished to narcotic treatment program directors upon written request of the narcotic treatment program director provided the request is accompanied by a signed release from the person whose records are being requested.
(2) Inspect narcotic treatment programs in this state and ensure that programs are operating in accordance with the law and regulations. The department shall have sole responsibility for compliance inspections of all programs in each county. Annual compliance inspections shall consist of an evaluation by onsite review of the operations and records of licensed narcotic treatment programs’ compliance with applicable state and federal laws and regulations and the evaluation of input from local law enforcement and local governments, regarding concerns about the narcotic treatment program. At the conclusion of each inspection visit, the department shall conduct an exit conference to explain the cited deficiencies to the program staff and to provide recommendations to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations. The department shall provide an inspection report to the licensee within 30 days of the completed onsite review describing the program deficiencies. A corrective action plan shall be required from the program within 30 days of receipt of the inspection report. All corrective actions contained in the plan shall be implemented within 30 days of receipt of approval by the department of the corrective action plan submitted by the narcotic treatment program. For programs found not to be in compliance, a subsequent inspection of the program shall be conducted within 30 days after the receipt of the corrective action plan in order to ensure that corrective action has been implemented satisfactorily. Subsequent inspections of the program shall be conducted to determine and ensure that the corrective action has been implemented satisfactorily. For purposes of this requirement, “compliance” shall mean to have not committed any of the grounds for suspension or revocation of a license provided for under subdivision (a) of Section 11839.9 or paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) of Section 11839.9. Inspection of narcotic treatment programs shall be based on objective criteria including, but not limited to, an evaluation of the programs’ adherence to all applicable laws and regulations and input from local law enforcement and local governments. Nothing in this section shall preclude counties from monitoring their contract providers for compliance with contract requirements.
(3) Charge and collect licensure fees. In calculating the licensure fees, the department shall include staff salaries and benefits, related travel costs, and state operational and administrative costs. Fees shall be used to offset licensure and inspection costs not to exceed actual costs.
(4) Study and evaluate, on an ongoing basis, narcotic treatment programs including, but not limited to, the adherence of the programs to all applicable laws and regulations and the impact of the programs on the communities in which they are located.
(5) Provide advice, consultation, and technical assistance to narcotic treatment programs to ensure that the programs comply with all applicable laws and regulations and to minimize any negative impact that the programs may have on the communities in which they are located.
(6) In its discretion, to approve local agencies or bodies to assist it in carrying out this chapter provided that the department may not delegate responsibility for inspection or any other licensure activity without prior and specific statutory approval. However, the department shall evaluate recommendations made by county alcohol and drug program administrators regarding licensing activity in their respective counties.
(7) The director may grant exceptions to the regulations adopted under this chapter if he or she determines that this action would improve treatment services or achieve greater protection to the health and safety of patients, the local community, or the general public. No exception may be granted if it is contrary to, or less stringent than, the federal laws and regulations which govern narcotic treatment programs.
(b) It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this section in order to protect the general public and local communities, that self-administered dosage shall only be provided when the patient is clearly adhering to the requirements of the program, and where daily attendance at a clinic would be incompatible with gainful employment, education, and responsible homemaking. The department shall define “satisfactory adherence” and shall ensure that patients not satisfactorily adhering to their programs shall not be provided take-home dosage.
(c) There is established in the State Treasury the Narcotic Treatment Program Licensing Trust Fund. All licensure fees collected from the providers of narcotic treatment service shall be deposited in this fund. Except as otherwise provided in this section, if funds remain in this fund after appropriation by the Legislature and allocation for the costs associated with narcotic treatment licensure actions and inspection of narcotic treatment programs, a percentage of the excess funds shall be annually rebated to the licensees based on the percentage their licensing fee is of the total amount of fees collected by the department. A reserve equal to 10 percent of the total licensure fees collected during the preceding fiscal year may be held in each trust account to reimburse the department if the actual cost for the licensure and inspection exceed fees collected during a fiscal year.
(d) Notwithstanding any provision of this code or regulations to the contrary, the department shall have sole responsibility and authority for determining if a state narcotic treatment program license shall be granted and for administratively establishing the maximum treatment capacity of any license. However, the department shall not increase the capacity of a program unless it determines that the licensee is operating in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

Fees paid quarterly in arrears shall be due and payable on the last day of each quarter except for the fourth quarter for which payment shall be due and payable no later than May 31. A failure of a program to pay renewal license fees by the due date shall give rise to a civil penalty of one hundred dollars ($100) a day for each day after the due date. Second and subsequent inspection visits to narcotic treatment programs that are operating in noncompliance with the applicable laws and regulations shall be charged a rate of one-half the program’s annual license fee or one thousand dollars ($1,000), whichever is less, for each visit.
(4) Licensing shall be contingent upon determination by the department that the program is in compliance with applicable laws and regulations and upon payment of the licensing fee. A license shall not be transferable.
(5) (A) As used in this chapter, “quarter” means July, August, and September; October, November, and December; January, February, and March; and April, May, and June.
(B) As used in this chapter, “license” means a basic permit to operate a narcotic treatment program. The license shall be issued exclusively by the department and operated in accordance with a patient capacity that shall be specified, approved, and monitored solely by the department.

(c) Any licensee that increases fees to the patient, in response to increases in licensure fees required by the department, shall first provide written disclosure to the patient of that amount of the patient fee increase that is attributable to the increase in the licensure fee. This provision shall not be construed to limit patient fee increases imposed by the licensee upon any other basis.

13864.
 There is hereby created in the agency the Comprehensive Alcohol and Drug Prevention Education component of the Suppression of Drug Abuse in Schools Program in public elementary schools in grades 4 to 6, inclusive. Notwithstanding Section 13861 or any other provision in this code, all Comprehensive Alcohol and Drug Prevention Education component funds made available to the agency in accordance with the Classroom Instructional Improvement and Accountability Act shall be administered by and disbursed to county superintendents of schools in this state by the secretary. All applications for that funding shall be reviewed and evaluated by the agency, in consultation with the State Department of Health Care Services and the State Department of Education.
(a) The secretary is authorized to allocate and award funds to county department superintendents of schools for allocation to individual school districts or to a consortium of two or more school districts. Applications funded under this section shall comply with the criteria, policies, and procedures established under subdivision (b) of this section.

The elements of the standardized comprehensive alcohol and drug prevention education program curriculum shall be defined and approved by the Governor’s Policy Council on Drug and Alcohol Abuse, as established by Executive Order No. D-70-80.
(2) A planning process that includes assessment of the school district’s characteristics, resources, and the extent of problems related to juvenile drug abuse, and input from local law enforcement agencies.
(3) A school district governing board policy that provides for a coordinated intervention system that, at a minimum, includes procedures for identification, intervention, and referral of at-risk alcohol- and drug-involved youth, and identifies the roles and responsibilities of law enforcement, school personnel, parents, and pupils.

(c) The application of the county superintendent of schools shall be submitted to the agency. Funds made available to the agency for allocation under this section are intended to enhance, but shall not supplant, local funds that would, in the absence of the Comprehensive Alcohol and Drug Prevention Education component, be made available to prevent, intervene in, or suppress drug abuse among schoolage children.

The guidelines shall not constitute rules, regulations, orders, or standards of general application.
(f) Funds awarded under the Comprehensive Alcohol and Drug Prevention Education Program shall not be subject to Section 10318 of the Public Contract Code.
(g) Funds available pursuant to Item 8100-111-001 and Provision 1 of Item 8100-001-001 of the Budget Act of 1989, or the successor provision of the appropriate Budget Act, shall be allocated to implement this section.
(h) The secretary shall collaborate, to the extent possible, with other state agencies that administer drug, alcohol, and tobacco abuse prevention education programs to streamline and simplify the process whereby local educational agencies apply for drug, alcohol, and tobacco education funding under this section and under other state and federal programs. The agency, the State Department of Health Care Services, the State Department of Education, and other state agencies, to the extent possible, shall develop joint policies and collaborate planning in the administration of drug, alcohol, and tobacco abuse prevention education programs.

 Section 2100 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read:

2100.
 (a) The Legislature finds and declares that California’s children are growing up under conditions of great stress that are resulting in devastating effects on their development and well-being. Structural changes in society, including the breakdown in the traditional family and erosion of neighborhood community support networks, have taken a toll on their welfare, self-esteem, and academic achievement. While youth struggle with many difficulties, four risk factors stand out: academic failure, substance abuse, involvement in the criminal justice system, and teen pregnancy. To address these challenges, the State of California recognizes quality mentoring as a critical prevention strategy, not as a panacea for the aforementioned problems, but as a cost-effective method of assisting today’s youth to become productive, contributing members of society, and as an important source of data for improving the quality of all relationships between youth and adults. Research finds that without the caring support, counsel, and role modeling of more experienced individuals or exposure to natural support networks, young people are much more vulnerable to the destructive forces of apathy, abuse, and neglect. As we acknowledge the increasing numbers of children who do not have the benefit of positive relationships, there has been an increasing recognition of the value of mentoring, an activity that connects a caring and more experienced person with a young person who is in need of attention and support. As a means of maximizing public resources, mentoring is both efficient and effective, relying on volunteers as the core service providers to create collateral improvements in the lives of youth. The public investment in the prevention strategy of mentoring has inspired significant private support at the local level. Mentoring principles may also be used to create mentor-rich environments wherever youth and adults interact on a regular basis, thereby effectively expanding the world of positive adult contacts for youth in their natural environments.
(b) The complexities of supporting mentoring organizations and promoting the formation of positive developmental relationships wherever young people and adults interact requires the coordinated and sustained support of many private and public sector organizations to ensure that their services are available to all young persons who wish to have a mentor. To meet the needs of each young person, mentor services should be available in communities throughout California and mentor-rich environments should be created wherever young people and adults interact on a regular basis. Mentor programs should be culturally and linguistically competent and should embrace the rich diversity of the state. It is the intent of the Legislature and the purpose of this chapter to foster a partnership between the public and private sector for the long-term support of quality mentor programs and mentor-rich environments in which young people can interact on a regular basis with an array of caring adults.
(c) Mentoring California’s youth has been carried on by thousands of dedicated volunteers through local mentor organizations and with the very significant contributions of the business community in both time and money. State and local government agencies also operate mentor programs. However, the need far outweighs the current resources. The valuable potential services of many caring adults and older youth continue to go untapped while the waiting list of children in need continues to grow, and distant youth-adult relationships continue to exist where developmental youth-adult relationships could flourish.
(d) This section shall become inoperative on July 1, 2013.

(c) “Mentor-rich environments” are environments that create many opportunities for young people to interact with an array of caring adults and where youth feel respected, connected, and affirmed.

 Section 17700 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read:

17700.
 The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
(a) Many children adjudicated dependents of the juvenile court pursuant to Section 300 and following are, because of abuse, neglect, or exploitation within the family environment, unable to remain safely in their own homes.
(b) Children requiring placement in foster care are, pursuant to Section 675 (5)(a) of Title 42 of the United States Code, entitled to placement in the least restrictive, most family-like setting in close proximity to the parent’s home, consistent with the best interest and special needs of the child.
(c) A significant number of children adjudicated dependents of the juvenile court under Section 300 and following who require placement outside their own homes have special health care needs. Children with biological families who can provide health care services can be discharged from hospital care into home care when it has been determined that the child is medically stable.
(d) Children who have become dependents of the juvenile court may become, because of a lack of appropriate placement options, long-term boarders in hospitals or other health care institutions.
(e) It is, therefore, the intent of the Legislature to support expansion of existing prevention and treatment programs designed to serve the parent and child with special health care needs which are administered by the State Department of Health Care Services, and the State Department of Social Services.
Further, it is the intent of the Legislature to establish a program to place children with special health care needs in special foster care homes, licensed pursuant to Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 1500) of Division 2 of the Health and Safety Code, wherein foster parents are trained by health care professionals, pursuant to the discharge plan of the facility releasing the child being placed, or who is currently, in foster care.
It is further the intent of the Legislature to encourage, to the extent feasible, the placement of children with special health care needs with relatives trained by health care professionals.
