Universal Citation: 7 NM Admin Code 7.32.8.6

Current through Register Vol. 35, No. 6, March 26, 2024

This rule establishes standards for opioid treatment programs to be consistent with the SAMHSA/CSAT regulations and the OTP accreditation requirements of nationally recognized accreditation bodies approved by SAMSA/CSAT, such as CARF and JCAHO. The intent is to:

A. be consistent with, and complimentary to, the substance abuse and mental health services administration/center for substance abuse treatment (SAMHSA/CSAT) regulations, and the OTP accreditation requirements of nationally recognized accreditation bodies approved by SAMHSA/CSAT, such as commission on accreditation of rehabilitation facilities (CARF) and the joint commission on accreditation of healthcare organizations (JCAHO);

B. reduce the stigma sometimes associated with opioid dependency treatment and ensure access to it comparable to treatment availability for other chronic medical conditions;

C. consider the possible adverse impact on communities in which OTP providers are located in making application approval decisions, and to provide measures to promote mutually satisfactory relationships between OTP providers and their communities.
