The array of addiction services and recovery supports for all levels of opioid and co-occurring drug addiction required by section 340.032 of the Revised Code to be included in a community-based continuum of care established under that section shall include at least ambulatory and sub-acute detoxification, non-intensive and intensive outpatient services, medication-assisted treatment, peer support, residential services, recovery housing pursuant to section 340.034 of the Revised Code, and multiple paths to recovery such as twelve-step approaches. The services and supports shall be made available in the service district of each board of alcohol, drug addiction, and mental health services, except as provided by either of the following:

(A) Sub-acute detoxification and residential services may be made available through a contract with one or more providers of sub-acute detoxification or residential services located in other service districts.

(B) To the extent authorized by a time-limited waiver issued under section 5119.221 of the Revised Code, ambulatory detoxification and medication-assisted treatment may be made available through a contract with one or more community addiction services providers located not more than thirty miles beyond the borders of the board's service district.

The services and supports shall be made available in a manner that ensures that recipients are able to access the services and supports they need for opioid and co-occurring drug addiction in an integrated manner and in accordance with their assessed needs when changing or obtaining additional addiction services or recovery supports for such addiction. An individual seeking a service or support for opioid and co-occurring drug addiction included in a community-based continuum of care shall not be denied the service or support on the basis of the individual's prior experience with the service or support.
