House OKs Narconon bill
The House approved a bill Monday that would allow the state Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Department to inspect recovery support facilities, such as Narconon Arrowhead where three patients have died in recent months. The House voted 80-13 to pass Senate Bill 295. It now goes back to the Senate. Rep. David Derby, R-Owasso, the House sponsor of the measure, said the intent of the bill is to make sure recovery support facilities such as Narconon Arrowhead are usual and customary.
