Privacy is key to recovery. It’s also the law. Get the facts about patient privacy and Protected Health Information 

We're happy to share another key resource to help healthcare professionals and administrators who provide Substance Use Disorder (SUD) services to determine if Part 2 applies to them or their practice.   


This video:

  • is the third in a set of animated videos meant to assist SUD providers and administrators, in all settings, to determine whether their patients’ records are protected by the federal confidentiality law and regulations for SUD treatment records, 42 CFR Part 2 (“Part 2”) 

  • addresses Program Type 3: Identified SUD personnel within a general medical facility, such as a DATA 2000-waivered physician in a general hospital who prescribes buprenorphine and whose primary function is providing SUD treatment 

  • provides an opportunity to learn more or new concepts in approximately 5 minutes 

If you missed it: check out our first two videos!
