Privacy & Confidentiality
Privacy and confidentiality are fundamental aspects of our program. It is our legal obligation to guarantee your privacy, though it is also our moral responsibility to facilitate trust through confidentiality, creating a secure environment that is most conducive to your recovery.
We ensure that clients are fully aware of their legal rights upon admission to the program. These rights are outlined in a number of state and federal laws, which notably include:
HIPAA – Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act
HIPAA, which was passed by Congress in 1996, created a Privacy Rule with regard to the disclosure of Protected Health Information by insurance providers and addiction treatment centers. Pursuant to this rule, the personal records of each patient are kept strictly private and any disclosure of this information is limited only to cases wherein he or she has given express consent.
42 Code of Federal Regulations Part 2
Title 42, Chapter I, Subchapter A Part 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations codifies the provisions regarding patient records at drug and alcohol treatment centers and can be viewed here.
Privacy, Trust, & Sobriety
RECO Intensive’s legal and professional duty to adhere to these laws is enhanced by our strong personal commitment to your confidentiality. Each and every member of our staff exemplifies this commitment on a daily basis, as we believe that addicts are better able to succeed when they are living and recovering in a safe, honest environment. We want every patient to trust in our mission, and work diligently to protect your anonymity throughout your participation in the program.
