59-29b66. Order for treatment; dismissal. (a) Upon the completion of the trial, if the court or jury finds by clear and convincing evidence that the proposed patient is a person with an alcohol or substance abuse problem subject to involuntary commitment for care and treatment under this act, the court shall order treatment for such person for a specified period of time not to exceed three months from the date of the trial at a treatment facility. Whenever an involuntary patient is ordered to receive treatment, the clerk of the district court shall send a copy of the order to the Kansas bureau of investigation within five days after receipt of the order. The Kansas bureau of investigation shall immediately enter the order into the national criminal information center and other appropriate databases. An order for treatment in a treatment facility shall be conditioned upon the consent of the head of that treatment facility to accepting the patient. In the event no appropriate treatment facility has agreed to provide treatment for the patient, then the secretary for aging and disability services shall be given responsibility for providing or securing treatment for the patient.

(b) A copy of the order for treatment shall be provided to the head of the treatment facility.

(c) When the court orders treatment, it shall retain jurisdiction to modify, change or terminate such order, unless venue has been changed pursuant to K.S.A. 59-29b71, and amendments thereto, and then the receiving court shall have continuing jurisdiction.

(d) If the court finds from the evidence that the proposed patient has not been shown to be a person with an alcohol or substance abuse problem subject to involuntary commitment for care and treatment under this act, the court shall release the person and terminate the proceedings.
