Rules and Regulations For Licensing Providers by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services [12 VAC 35 ‑ 105]
Action:
Align language to Code for geographic exceptions for licensed providers of opiate addiction treatment
 
General Information
Action Summary The purpose of this fast-track regulatory action is to align Section 925 of the Licensing regulations with changes in the Code of Virginia § 37.2-406. Specifically, in the code there are three exceptions to the geographic restriction on DBHDS-licensed providers of treatment for persons with opiate addiction through the use of opioid replacements that are within half-mile of a K-12 school or licensed day care center for the treatment of opioid addiction. The history of the exemptions is: • Chapter 845 of the 2004 Acts of Assembly added Planning District 8. • Chapter 415 of the 2014 Acts of Assembly added Planning District 23. • Chapter 480 of the 2016 Acts of Assembly added using nonmethadone opioid replacements if the opioid replacement has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of opioid addiction. This fast-track action would update the existing regulation to reflect these, and any future, changes to state law. By deleting all language in Section 925 B., the remaining language would simply cross-reference to § 37.2-406.
