Developmental Disabilities and Behavioral Health Facilities
Inpatient Facilities: An inpatient facility is any private dwelling, where shelter, food, and care, or treatment, or maintenance, or related services are directly provided or arranged for by the facility to persons who are substance abusers living in a group setting. Inpatient facilities are residential settings.
Outpatient facilities: An outpatient facility is a program or service provided for less than 24 consecutive hours primarily or exclusively to persons who are substance abusers. Outpatient substance abuse treatment centers do not include services that can be rendered only by a physician or within a hospital. Outpatient facilities are non-residential programs.
Exceptions: Licensing does not apply to:
- Self-run programs in which persons who are substance abusers provide mutual support and encouragement to avoid substance abuse. If a substance abuse professional is involved in a self-help program it is only in an advisory or informational rather than a supervisory or administrative capacity.
- Self-help programs which may be residential, which are operated by persons who are substance abusers for their own benefit. If a substance abuse professional is involved in a self-run program it is only in an advisory or informational rather than a supervisory or administrative capacity.
- A home, apartment or facility which does not exercise even minimum supervision over the personal care, activities of daily living, or health maintenance of the clients; or
- Licensed or certified professionals who are in private practice providing services under their individual professional license or certification.
