Page 398, line 17, strike "non-narcotic," and insert "appropriate".


(This amendment eliminates language requiring the use of non-narcotic, long-acting injectable prescription drug treatment regimens used for drug treatment court programs. Instead, it requires the use of appropriate long-acting injectable prescription drug treatment regimens. Injectable narcotic long-acting prescription drugs can be effective and easily controlled by the service provider so as to prevent any potential abuse by the individual obtaining treatment services.)
