Be It Enacted by the People of the State of Oregon:
  SECTION 1. ORS 421.504 is amended to read:
  421.504. (1) The Department of Corrections, in consultation
with the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission, shall establish a
special alternative incarceration program stressing a highly
structured and regimented routine. The program:
  (a) Shall reflect evidence-based practices;
  (b) Shall include a component of intensive self-discipline,
physical work and physical exercise;
  (c) Shall provide for cognitive restructuring in conformance
with generally accepted rehabilitative standards;
  (d) May include a drug and alcohol treatment component that
meets the standards promulgated by the Oregon Health Authority
pursuant to ORS 430.357; and
  (e) Shall be at least   { - 270 - }   { + 240 + } days'
duration.
  (2) The department shall provide capital improvements and
capital construction necessary for the implementation of the
program.
  (3) Notwithstanding subsection (1) of this section, the
department may convert the special alternative incarceration
program required by this section into an intensive alternative
incarceration addiction program as described in ORS 421.506 if
the department determines that the needs of offenders in the
department's custody would be better served by an intensive
alternative incarceration addiction program than by the special
alternative incarceration program.
