NOTICE OF CLIENT CONFIDENTIALITY of Alcohol/Drug Abuse and Mental Health Client Records

Federal laws and regulations protect the confidentiality of alcohol/drug abuse and mental health client records maintained by PathLight Counseling. Generally, PathLight Counseling may not say to a person outside the program that a client attends the program, or disclose any information identifying a client as an alcohol or drug abuser, unless:

1. The client consents in writing.
2. The disclosure is allowed by a court order.
3. The disclosure is made to medical personnel in a medical emergency or to qualified personnel for research, audit, or program evaluation.

Violation of the federal law and regulations by a program is a crime. Suspected violations may be reported to appropriate authorities in accordance with federal regulations. Federal laws and regulations do not protect any information about a crime committed by a client either at the program or against any person who works for the program or about any threat to commit such a crime. Federal laws and regulations do not protect any information about suspected child abuse or neglect from being reported under state law to appropriate state or local authorities.
