(A) On application by a community addiction services provider that has purchased or leased real property to be used as the location of a methadone treatment program licensed under section 5119.391 of the Revised Code, the department of mental health and addiction services shall determine whether there is a public or private school, licensed child day-care center, or other child-serving agency within a radius of five hundred linear feet of the location of the property.

If it determines there is not a public or private school, licensed child day-care center, or other child-serving agency within a radius of five hundred linear feet of the location, the department shall issue a declaration that the location is in compliance with division (C)(4) section 5119.391 of the Revised Code.

The declaration is valid for one year and shall be extended for up to two six-month periods on application by the provider to the department.

The department shall provide to the provider either a copy of the declaration or notice that the department has determined that the location is not in compliance with division (C)(4) of section 5119.391 of the Revised Code.

If, before expiration of the declaration and any extensions, a community addiction services provider applies for a license to maintain a methadone treatment program, the department shall not consider the requirement of division (C)(4) of section 5119.391 of the Revised Code in determining whether to issue the license.

(B) A community addiction services provider that desires to relocate a methadone treatment program licensed under section 5119.391 of the Revised Code may apply for and be granted a declaration under division (A) of this section. If, before expiration of the declaration and any extensions, the provider applies for issuance of a license due to relocation, the department shall not consider the requirement of division (C)(4) of section 5119.391 of the Revised Code in determining whether to reissue the license due to relocation.
