Persons subject to court-ordered treatment or supervision—Documentation. (Effective until April 1, 2018.)

(1) Treatment providers shall inquire of each person seeking treatment, at intake, whether the person is subject to court-ordered mental health or chemical dependency treatment, whether civil or criminal, and document the person's response in his or her record. If the person is in treatment on July 1, 2005, and the treatment provider has not inquired whether the person is subject to court-ordered mental health or chemical dependency treatment, the treatment provider shall inquire on the person's next treatment session and document the person's response in his or her record.
(2) Treatment providers shall inquire of each person seeking treatment, at intake, whether the person is subject to supervision of any kind by the department of corrections and document the person's response in his or her record. If the person is in treatment on July 1, 2005, and the treatment provider has not inquired whether the person is subject to supervision of any kind by the department of corrections, the treatment provider shall inquire on the person's next treatment session and document the person's response in his or her record.
(3) For all persons who are subject to both court-ordered mental health or chemical dependency treatment and supervision by the department of corrections, the treatment provider shall request an authorization to release records and notify the person that, unless expressly excluded by the court order the law requires treatment providers to share information with the department of corrections and the person's mental health treatment provider.
(4) If the treatment provider has reason to believe that a person is subject to supervision by the department of corrections but the person's record does not indicate that he or she is, the treatment provider may call any department of corrections office and provide the person's name and birth date. If the person is subject to supervision, the treatment provider shall request, and the department of corrections shall provide, the name and contact information for the person's community corrections officer.
