AS 47.37.140. Public and Private Treatment Facilities.
- (a) The department shall establish standards for facilities, which standards may vary in their requirements and stringency
according to the population, price level, remoteness, access to transportation, and availability of ancillary services
of the area to be served, and shall fix the fees to be charged for the required inspections of those facilities. A
facility shall meet the applicable standards before it is approved as a public or private treatment facility. The
standards shall be enacted in a manner that will provide protection of the health, safety, and well-being of clients of
the affected programs and protection for the affected programs from exposure to malpractice and liability actions.
- (b) The department shall inspect, on a regular basis, approved public and private treatment facilities at reasonable times
and in a reasonable manner.
- (c) The department shall maintain a list of approved public and private treatment facilities.
- (d) An approved public and private treatment facility shall file with the department, on request, data, statistics,
schedules, and information which the department reasonably requires. An approved public or private treatment facility
that without good cause fails to furnish any data, statistics, schedules, or information as requested, or files
fraudulent returns of them, shall be removed from the list of approved treatment facilities.
- (e) The department, after holding a hearing under the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (AS 44.62), may suspend, revoke, limit, restrict, or refuse to grant an
approval for a treatment facility, for failure to meet its standards.
- (f) Upon petition of the department and after a hearing held upon reasonable notice to the facility, the district court
may issue a warrant to an officer or employee of the department authorizing the officer or employee to enter and
inspect at reasonable times, and examine the books and accounts of an approved public or private treatment facility
refusing to consent to inspection or examination by the department or which the department has reasonable cause to
believe is operating in violation of this chapter.
- (g) The standards established for facilities under this section must be based on scientifically
sound evidence and be consistent with the priorities created under AS 47.37.045 (e) and (f).
