Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (20 ILCS 301/1-5)
    Sec. 1-5. Legislative declaration. Substance use disorders, as defined in this Act, constitute a serious public health problem. The effects on public safety and the criminal justice system cause serious social and economic losses, as well as great human suffering. It is imperative that a comprehensive and coordinated strategy be developed under the leadership of a State agency. This strategy should be implemented through the facilities of federal and local government and community-based agencies (which may be public or private, volunteer or professional). Through local prevention, early intervention, treatment, and other recovery support services, this strategy should empower those struggling with substance use disorders (and, when appropriate, the families of those persons) to lead healthy lives.
    The human, social, and economic benefits of preventing substance use disorders are great, and it is imperative that there be interagency cooperation in the planning and delivery of prevention, early intervention, treatment, and other recovery support services in Illinois.
    The provisions of this Act shall be liberally construed to enable the Department to carry out these objectives and purposes.

    Sec. 15-5. Applicability.
    (a) It is unlawful for any person to provide treatment for substance use disorders or to provide services as specified in subsections (a) and (b) of Section 15-10 of this Act unless the person is licensed to do so by the Department. The performance of these activities by any person in violation of this Act is declared to be inimical to the public health and welfare, and to be a public nuisance. The Department may undertake such inspections and investigations as it deems appropriate to determine whether licensable activities are being conducted without the requisite license.
    (b) Nothing in this Act shall be construed to require any hospital, as defined by the Hospital Licensing Act, required to have a license from the Department of Public Health pursuant to the Hospital Licensing Act to obtain any license under this Act for any substance use disorder treatment services operated on the licensed premises of the hospital, and operated by the hospital or its designated agent, provided that such services are covered within the scope of the Hospital Licensing Act. No person or facility required to be licensed under this Act shall be required to obtain a license pursuant to the Hospital Licensing Act or the Child Care Act of 1969.
    (c) Nothing in this Act shall be construed to require an individual employee of a licensed program to be licensed under this Act.
    (d) Nothing in this Act shall be construed to require any private professional practice, whether by an individual practitioner, by a partnership, or by a duly incorporated professional service corporation, that provides outpatient treatment for substance use disorders to be licensed under this Act, provided that the treatment is rendered personally by the professional in his own name and the professional is authorized by individual professional licensure or registration from the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to provide substance use disorder treatment unsupervised. This exemption shall not apply to such private professional practice that provides or holds itself out, as defined in Section 1-10, as providing substance use disorder outpatient treatment. This exemption shall also not apply to licensable intervention services, research, or residential treatment services as defined in this Act or by rule.
    Notwithstanding any other provisions of this subsection to the contrary, persons licensed to practice medicine in all of its branches in Illinois shall not require licensure under this Act unless their private professional practice provides and holds itself out, as defined in Section 1-10, as providing substance use disorder outpatient treatment.
    (e) Nothing in this Act shall be construed to require any employee assistance program operated by an employer or any intervenor program operated by a professional association to obtain any license pursuant to this Act to perform services that do not constitute licensable treatment or intervention as defined in this Act.
    (f) Before any violation of this Act is reported by the Department or any of its agents to any State's Attorney for the institution of a criminal proceeding, the person against whom such proceeding is contemplated shall be given appropriate notice and an opportunity to present his views before the Department or its designated agent, either orally or in writing, in person or by an attorney, with regard to such contemplated proceeding. Nothing in this Act shall be construed as requiring the Department to report minor violations of this Act whenever the Department believes that the public interest would be adequately served by a suitable written notice or warning.

    (20 ILCS 301/30-5)
    Sec. 30-5. Patients' rights established.
    (a) For purposes of this Section, "patient" means any person who is receiving or has received early intervention, treatment, or other recovery support services under this Act or any category of service licensed as "intervention" under this Act.
    (b) No patient shall be deprived of any rights, benefits, or privileges guaranteed by law, the Constitution of the United States of America, or the Constitution of the State of Illinois solely because of his or her status as a patient.
    (c) Persons who have substance use disorders who are also suffering from medical conditions shall not be discriminated against in admission or treatment by any hospital that receives support in any form supported in whole or in part by funds appropriated to any State department or agency.
    (d) Every patient shall have impartial access to services without regard to race, religion, sex, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or other disability.
    (e) Patients shall be permitted the free exercise of religion.
    (f) Every patient's personal dignity shall be recognized in the provision of services, and a patient's personal privacy shall be assured and protected within the constraints of his or her individual treatment.
    (g) Treatment services shall be provided in the least restrictive environment possible.
    (h) Each patient receiving treatment services shall be provided an individual treatment plan, which shall be periodically reviewed and updated as mandated by administrative rule.
    (i) Treatment shall be person-centered, meaning that every patient shall be permitted to participate in the planning of his or her total care and medical treatment to the extent that his or her condition permits.
    (j) A person shall not be denied treatment solely because he or she has withdrawn from treatment against medical advice on a prior occasion or had prior treatment episodes.
    (k) The patient in residential treatment shall be permitted visits by family and significant others, unless such visits are clinically contraindicated.
    (l) A patient in residential treatment shall be allowed to conduct private telephone conversations with family and friends unless clinically contraindicated.
    (m) A patient in residential treatment shall be permitted to send and receive mail without hindrance, unless clinically contraindicated.

Every patient and his or her family member or legal guardian who makes a complaint shall receive a timely response from the provider that substantively addresses the complaint. The provider shall inform the patient and the patient's family or legal guardian about other sources of assistance if the provider has not resolved the complaint to the satisfaction of the patient or the patient's family or legal guardian.

information apply whether the holder of the information already has it, has other means of obtaining it, is a law enforcement or other official, has obtained a subpoena, or asserts any other justification for a disclosure or use that is not permitted by 42 C.F.R. Part 2. Any court orders authorizing disclosure of patient records under this Act must comply with the procedures and criteria set forth in 42 C.F.R. Sections 2.64 and 2.65. Except as authorized by a court order granted under this Section, no record referred to in this Section may be used to initiate or substantiate any charges against a patient or to conduct any investigation of a patient.

record referred to in this Section except as authorized shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
        (6) The Department shall prescribe regulations to
    
carry out the purposes of this subsection.

    (c) (Blank).
    (d) (Blank).

    (f) The Department shall develop and maintain an updated and comprehensive directory of licensed providers that deliver treatment and intervention services. The Department shall post on its website a licensed provider directory updated at least quarterly.
    (g) As a condition of any State grant or contract, the Department shall require that any treatment program for women with substance use disorders provide services, either by its own staff or by agreement with other agencies or individuals, which include but need not be limited to the following:

    Sec. 40-10. Treatment as a condition of probation.
    (a) If a court has reason to believe that an individual who is charged with or convicted of a crime suffers from a substance use disorder and the court finds that he or she is eligible to make the election provided for under Section 40-5, the court shall advise the individual that he or she may be sentenced to probation and shall be subject to terms and conditions of probation under Section 5-6-3 of the Unified Code of Corrections if he or she elects to participate in treatment and is accepted for services by a designated program. The court shall further advise the individual that:
        (1) If he or she elects to participate in treatment
    
and is accepted he or she shall be sentenced to probation and placed under the supervision of the designated program for a period not to exceed the maximum sentence that could be imposed for his or her conviction or 5 years, whichever is less.
        (2) During probation he or she may be treated at the
    
discretion of the designated program.
        (3) If he or she adheres to the requirements of the
    
designated program and fulfills the other conditions of probation ordered by the court, he or she will be discharged, but any failure to adhere to the requirements of the designated program is a breach of probation.
    The court may require an individual to obtain treatment while on probation under the supervision of a designated program and probation authorities regardless of the election of the individual if the assessment, as specified in subsection (b), indicates that such treatment is medically necessary.
    (b) If the individual elects to undergo treatment or is required to obtain treatment, the court shall order an assessment by a designated program to determine whether he or she suffers from a substance use disorder and is likely to be rehabilitated through treatment. The designated program shall report to the court the results of the assessment and, if treatment is determined medically necessary, indicate the diagnosis and the recommended initial level of care. If the court, on the basis of the report and other information, finds that such an individual suffers from a substance use disorder and is likely to be rehabilitated through treatment, the individual shall be placed on probation and under the supervision of a designated program for treatment and under the supervision of the proper probation authorities for probation supervision unless, giving consideration to the nature and circumstances of the offense and to the history, character, and condition of the individual, the court is of the opinion that no significant relationship exists between the substance use disorder of the individual and the crime committed, or that his or her imprisonment or periodic imprisonment is necessary for the protection of the public, and the court specifies on the record the particular evidence, information, or other reasons that form the basis of such opinion. However, under no circumstances shall the individual be placed under the supervision of a designated program for treatment before the entry of a judgment of conviction.
    (c) If the court, on the basis of the report or other information, finds that the individual suffering from a substance use disorder is not likely to be rehabilitated through treatment, or that his or her substance use disorder and the crime committed are not significantly related, or that his or her imprisonment or periodic imprisonment is necessary for the protection of the public, the court shall impose sentence as in other cases. The court may require such progress reports on the individual from the probation officer and designated program as the court finds necessary. Case management services, as defined in this Act and as further described by rule, shall also be delivered by the designated program. No individual may be placed under treatment supervision unless a designated program accepts him or her for treatment.
    (d) Failure of an individual placed on probation and under the supervision of a designated program to observe the requirements set down by the designated program shall be considered a probation violation. Such failure shall be reported by the designated program to the probation officer in charge of the individual and treated in accordance with probation regulations.
    (e) Upon successful fulfillment of the terms and conditions of probation the court shall discharge the person from probation. If the person has not previously been convicted of any felony offense and has not previously been granted a vacation of judgment under this Section, upon motion, the court shall vacate the judgment of conviction and dismiss the criminal proceedings against him or her unless, having considered the nature and circumstances of the offense and the history, character and condition of the individual, the court finds that the motion should not be granted. Unless good cause is shown, such motion to vacate must be filed at any time from the date of the entry of the judgment to a date that is not more than 60 days after the discharge of the probation.

A designated program shall establish the conditions under which a parolee or releasee is accepted for services. No parolee or releasee may be placed under the supervision of a designated program for treatment unless the designated program accepts him or her for treatment.

        (3) The inspection warrant shall state the grounds
    
for its issuance, the names of persons whose affidavits have been taken in support thereof and any items or types of property to be seized.
        (4) The inspection warrant shall be directed to a
    
person authorized by the Secretary to execute it, shall command the person to inspect or seize the property, direct that it be served at any time of day or night, and designate a circuit judge to whom it shall be returned.
