    firearms pursuant to this section.

    SECTION 11. ORS 426.133 is amended to read:

    426.133. (1) As used in ORS 426.005 to 426.390, “assisted outpatient treatment” may not be construed

    to be a commitment under ORS 426.130 and does not include taking a person into custody

    or the forced medication of a person.

    (2) A court may issue an order requiring a person to participate in assisted outpatient treatment

    if the court finds that the person:

    (a)(A) Is 18 years of age or older;

    (B) Has a mental disorder;

    (C) Will not obtain treatment in the community voluntarily; and

    (D) Is unable to make an informed decision to seek or to comply with voluntary treatment; and

    (b) As a result of being a person described in paragraph (a) of this subsection:

    (A) Is incapable of surviving safely in the community without treatment; and

    (B) Requires treatment to prevent a deterioration in the person’s condition that will predictably

    result in the person becoming a person with mental illness.

    (3) In determining whether to issue the order under subsection (2) of this section, the court shall

    consider, but is not limited to considering, the following factors:

    (a) The person’s ability to access finances in order to get food or medicine.

    (b) The person’s ability to obtain treatment for the person’s medical condition.

    (c) The person’s ability to access necessary resources in the community without assistance.

    (d) The degree to which there are risks to the person’s safety.

    (e) The likelihood that the person will decompensate without immediate care or treatment.

    (i) The person’s risk of being victimized or harmed by others.

    (j) The person’s access to the means to inflict harm on self or others.

    (4) The community mental health program director may recommend to the court a treatment

    plan for a person participating in assisted outpatient treatment. The court may adopt the plan as

    recommended or with modifications.

    (5) As part of the order under subsection (2) of this section, the court may prohibit the

    person from purchasing or possessing a firearm during the period of assisted outpatient

    treatment if, in the opinion of the court, there is a reasonable likelihood the person would

    constitute a danger to self or others or to the community at large as a result of the person’s

    mental or psychological state, as demonstrated by past behavior or participation in incidents

    involving unlawful violence or threats of unlawful violence, or by reason of a single incident

    of extreme, violent, unlawful conduct. When a court adds a firearm prohibition to an order

    under subsection (2) of this section, the court shall cause a copy of the order to be delivered

    to the sheriff of the county, who shall enter the information into the Law Enforcement Data

    System.

    [(5)] (6) The court retains jurisdiction over the person until the earlier of the end of the period

    of the assisted outpatient treatment established under ORS 426.130 (2) or until the court finds that

    the person no longer meets the criteria in subsection (2) of this section.

    [(6)] (7) This section does not:

    (a) Prevent a court from appointing a guardian ad litem to act for the person; or

    (b) Require a county to provide treatment or services to, or supervision of, the person if the

    county lacks sufficient funds for such purposes.
