Are you a Part 2 Program? Guidance for SUD Providers Outside a General Medical Facility  

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 first 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 1: SUD providers outside general medical facilities, such as a free-standing SUD community-based treatment program, opioid treatment program (OTP), or residential SUD treatment program 

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