CEU Course Description

This CEU course is intended to ensure that a patient receiving treatment for a substance use disorder (SUD) in a Part 2 program, Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records, does not face adverse consequences in relation to issues such as criminal proceedings and domestic proceedings such as those related to child custody, divorce, or employment. Part 2 protects the confidentiality of SUD patient records by restricting the circumstances under which Part 2 Programs or other lawful holders can disclose such records.
