Designation of and standards for evaluation sites


The county mental health program director shall designate sites for evaluation in the county plan of individuals who may be or are known to be drug dependent. The Oregon Health Authority shall establish standards for such sites, consistent with ORS 430.357 (Minimum standards), and periodically publish a list of approved sites.


The costs of evaluation shall be borne by the county of appropriate jurisdiction. [1977 c.871 §6; 2009 c.595 §501; 2011 c.673 §34]
§§ 430.450 to 430.555

Notes of Decisions

These sections do not confer on drug-dependent defendants right to choose treatment in lieu of prosecution nor is there any due process or equal protection right to such treatment; discretion given to prosecutors under these sections does not violate separation of powers doctrine. State v. Graves, 58 Or App 286, 648 P2d 866 (1982)
