All Patients Are Entitled:

  • To participate in the design of their treatment and aftercare plan.
  • Patients are to be treated with respect, courtesy, dignity, and justice.
  • Patients are to be informed of their rights in a language they understand.
  • To absolute confidentiality for what they share in treatment and for files managed by the center.
  • To communicate in private with their assigned counselor.
  • To enjoy privacy in their treatment and in the care of their personal necessities.
  • To receive visitors during their residency as long as they don’t represent a risk to the recovery or security of that patient or other patients and staff at the center.
  • To receive treatment regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, political affiliation, sexual preference, religion, physical capacity, or economic condition.
  • To be able to be present without fear, complaints to the counselor, Director of Treatment, and the Executive Director, in that order giving reasonable time for the resolution of a problem.  
  • To leave treatment if they so decide.  

Your rights are very important at the center.  We know that addicts tend to give away their rights during active addiction, which is why it’s important to us that we value patient rights and teach our patients to respect their own and each other’s rights.
