§ 950-1-3-.12. The Use Of Physiological Measurements
(1) Use of the penile plethysmograph may be permitted, with prior approval, on a case-by-case basis within patient programs providing services to youth with illegal sexual behavior problems. Related state statutes must be considered in the development of a treatment plan that might include the use of the penile plethysmograph.
(2) Although there are no state statutes that specifically deal with the use of the plethysmograph on Juveniles, the State of Alabama does have definitive statutes regarding introduction of sexually provocative material by an adult to a minor. Therefore, the use of this instrumentation is deemed to be a high-risk practice and thus is not recommended for outpatient treatment.(New Rule: August 16, 2002; effective September 20, 2002. Amended by Alabama Administrative Monthly Volume XXXVII, Issue No. 02, November 30, 2018, eff. December 21, 2018.)
