HB 1424 ensures a parent or guardian has the authority to admit and keep a minor child (under the age of 13) into a treatment facility for chemical dependency treatment for fourteen days.  If the mental health or chemical dependency professional determines that it is appropriate to release the juvenile, the professional must notify the juvenile's parent or guardian.
