Joan is being released from jail on the condition that she enter a drug treatment program. She contacts Recovery Center to determine whether she is eligible for their program. They tell her she is not eligible, and she informs her Parole Officer of their decision and looks for services at other facilities. Her parole officer, then contacts Recovery Center and asks whether Joan has actually contacted them. Recovery Center informs Mark that she has. Is this a permissible disclosure?
|No, 42 CFR Part 2 protects anyone checking on their eligibility to enter a program following an arrest on a criminal charge.|
|Yes, 42 CFR Part 2 only protects those who have received treatment from or formally applied to the treatment program.|
|Yes, there is an exception to the non-disclosure rule where the client is incarcerated.|
