Client Rights & Confidentiality
Butterfly Healing Center is committed to providing all addiction rehab clients with a safe and structured environment in which to begin a new life after treatment.
To ensure the privacy and confidentiality of every client, Butterfly Healing Center adheres to a strict set of federal and state privacy regulations and internal policies. These polices specifically protect the confidentiality of client identity and client clinical information.
While undergoing addiction recovery treatment, clients have certain rights and responsibilities granted by federal laws. We are fully compliant with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and 42 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) Part 2 regulations.
At Butterfly Healing Center any consent provided will be considered informed consent. Informed consent implies that you fully understand the purpose of the signed release and your rights. Please carefully read all release forms you are asked to sign. Our admissions staff can answer any questions you may have regarding the release of your clinical and medical information. In general, staff members cannot disclose information to any individual or agency without your written consent. You also have the right to revoke or restrict any releases during your stay. Release forms are valid for one year from the date of signing.
Butterfly Healing Center works within legal and ethical guidelines to protect your confidentiality during an addiction recovery treatment program. We will not willingly violate your confidentiality unless there is a concern that you may pose a threat to your life or to another person. In these cases, we are obligated by law to notify authorities in an effort to protect you and others.
Anonymity is the cornerstone recovery programs and is absolutely imperative for clients in treatment. We ask all clients and family members to make every effort to refrain from discussing other clients’ issues or concerns. Violation of a fellow client‘s or their family member‘s anonymity in treatment is a serious concern and is considered a federal offense.
