CHAPTER 363

DETOXIFICATION PROCEDURES

363.001 Legislative History and Intent. This Chapter is intended to establish procedures for detoxification of persons on the reservation for the protection of themselves and others. These are not criminal procedures but are intended solely for the protection of persons and property. Persons taken into custody for detoxification may or may not be charged with crimes.

363.050 Custody of Intoxicated Persons. A person who is intoxicated by drugs or alcohol may be taken or sent to his or her home or to a treatment facility by the tribal police. If the intoxicated person is incapacitated, the person’s health appears to be in immediate danger, or the police have reasonable cause to believe the person is dangerous to himself or herself or to any other person, the person shall be taken by the police to an appropriate treatment facility or to the tribal jail. The person shall be considered incapacitated when unable to make a rational decision as to the acceptance of assistance.

363.100 Lodging and Jail. An incapacitated person may be lodged in the tribal jail if medical treatment is not needed or can be administered at the jail for a period not to exceed 48 hours. The intoxicated person shall be released when he or she is no longer intoxicated or incapacitated, unless he or she is being held on tribal, federal, or state criminal charges pursuant to WSTC Chapter 202.

363.150 Transportation to Treatment Facility. If an intoxicated person taken into custody requires emergency medical treatment, the police shall immediately take that person to an available treatment facility or seek ambulance services to do so.
