It can be shocking to consider what some professionals and allied service providers consider ethical and appropriate thoughts to have and behaviors to engage in. Ethics is something we have to breathe in and out every day we are in this profession; ethical breaches begin as a singular event along a slippery slope. As providers working in the addictions and co-occurring disorders profession, we have a duty and responsibility to adhere to legal and ethical mandates, in order to do no harm while delivering evidence-based, client-centered treatment and recovery support. NAADAC’s Code of Ethics (revised 01.01.21) provides the profession with standards of practice and boundaries of practice. This 6-hour workshop will begin with a discussion of key points in the NAADAC Code of Ethics. There will also be discussions, using case studies, on the following topics:
· telehealth lessons learned during COVID-19
· privacy versus confidentiality
updates to HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 42
· practicing in a culturally diverse world
· alignment of scope of practice
· difference between scope of practice and standard of practice
· boundary crossings versus boundary violations
· impairment versus functionality
· recommended practices that promote risk management.
The workshop will include time for open dialogue with attendees about real life scenarios and thoughts to consider.
