Psychiatric/Chemical Dependency Treatment Certificate of Need


The Department is currently experiencing technical problems with the occupancy database. Until program difficulties are resolved, click here to obtain a blank ODH Form 706, Substance Abuse and Psychiatric Services Monthly Report.

Psychiatric hospitals, psychiatric units and chemical dependency units in general acute hospitals must receive approval under Oklahoma’s Certificate of Need laws before establishing a new facility:

  • Increasing psychiatric or chemical dependency treatment beds at an existing facility,
  • Converting existing beds to serve persons under age 18,
  • Transferring ownership or operation of a facility, or
  • Spending $500,000 or more on any project.

The Department reviews an abbreviated application for these types of projects.  Standard reviews are required for all other types of projects including new facilities.
