Everyone should be able to get the help they need, without having to worry about sensitive treatment information being inappropriately shared. Get the facts about how patient privacy protections work for you. The following resources are intended to help patients better understand the federal privacy laws when accessing services.

The CoE-PHI does not provide technical assistance directly to patients and families.  To fill this gap, The National Family Support Technical Assistance Center (NFSTAC), also funded by SAMHSA, provides training and technical assistance to families affected by substance use disorder as they support their children throughout the lifespan, using an approach that is anchored by the underlying principles that families play a vital role in supporting their loved ones through the recovery process.  For more information and to request training and technical services visit the NFSTAC website.
