Protecting the Confidentiality of LGBT Individuals in Substance Abuse Treatment Programs Rutherfordton NC

The Federal law and regulations severely restrict communications about identifiable clients by “programs” specializing, in whole or in part, in providing treatment, counseling, and/or assessment and referral services for substance abuse problems (42 CFR §2.11). Although the Federal regulations apply only to programs that receive Federal assistance, this includes indirect forms of Federal aid, such as tax-exempt status or State or local government funding coming (in whole or in part) from the Federal Government.

The Federal law and regulations severely restrict communications about identifiable clients by “programs” specializing, in whole or in part, in providing treatment, counseling, and/or assessment and referral services for substance abuse problems (42 CFR §2.11).
