  • agencies to perform evaluation

(1) After a defendant has been convicted of a crime, the court may cause the defendant to be evaluated to determine if the defendant is an alcoholic or a drug-dependent person, as those terms are defined in ORS 430.306 (Definitions for ORS 430.315 to 430.335, 430.397 and 430.399). The evaluation shall be conducted by an agency or organization designated under subsection (2) of this section.

(2) The court shall designate agencies or organizations to perform the evaluations required under subsection (1) of this section. The designated agencies or organizations must meet the standards set by the Department of Human Services to perform the evaluations for drug dependency and must be approved by the department. Wherever possible, a court shall designate agencies or organizations to perform the evaluations that are separate from those that may be designated to carry out a program of treatment for alcohol or drug dependency. [1991 c.630 §1]
