Many people have difficult times in life and
may experience substance use problems.
The most important thing to remember
when asking yourself if you need
professional help is to trust yourself. If you are concerned about your own substance use or of someone else in your life the best thing to do is to reach out for help.
In the substance abuse field, confidentiality is governed by federal law [(42 U.S.C. § 290dd-2) and regulations (42 CFR Part 2)] that outlines under what limited circumstances information about the client’s treatment may be disclosed, with and without the client’s consent. 42 CFR Part 2 applies to all records relating to the identity, diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment of any patient in a substance abuse program that is conducted, regulated, or directly or indirectly assisted by any department or agency of the United States.
If you have an issue with the treatment services you are provided, at any time, you may file what is called a grievance.
