2694.  The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation shall expand
substance abuse treatment services in prisons to accommodate at
least 4,000 additional inmates who have histories of substance abuse.
In determining the prisons in which these additional treatment
services will be located, the department may consider efficiency and
efficacy of treatment, availability of staff resources, availability
of physical space, and availability of additional resources in
surrounding communities to supplement the treatment. In addition, the
department shall expand followup treatment services in the community
in order to ensure that offenders who participate in substance abuse
treatment while incarcerated in prison shall receive necessary
followup treatment while on parole.
