Confidentiality and Documentation for Substance Abuse Records

Brief Description:


The laws and regulations governing the confidentiality of substance use disorder records were written out of great concern about the potential use of substance use disorder information against individuals, causing individuals with substance use disorders not to seek needed treatment.

A risk managed approach to documentation is a best practice to protect both the client and the professional.
