Discretion in Addiction Recovery

In addiction recovery, many people face a common concern: privacy. Many people are reluctant to seek treatment for substance abuse because they are concerned about possible consequences if people find out. However, privacy laws are in place to protect against just that.

You Can Choose Who You Speak To

Many people with substance use disorders seek treatment at facilities that specialize in treating addiction. Those who seek help in addiction treatment centers have the right to privacy and to keep their personal information confidential. You do not need to worry that anyone else knows about your healing and recovery or your treatment plans except for you and the treatment center.

Yes, you can let your friends and family know you might be seeking treatment. If you want your friends and family to know, the treatment center can provide guidance as to how to have that conversation. However, many people choose not to mention seeking treatment to their loved ones because they don’t want to open up a can of worms.

Unfortunately, sometimes, when a person chooses to embrace a healthier lifestyle, conflicts with friends and family can arise. Sometimes, these conflicts can cause individuals not to seek the substance abuse treatment that they need.

Recovery Centers Respect Privacy

When you enter a treatment center, your need for healing and recovery is the primary goal. Professionals working in the treatment center understand the laws that safeguard the privacy of every person who walks through the center’s doors. Your personal information will be protected from the moment you pick up the phone to ask for more information to the day you leave after finishing treatment.

It is up to you to decide to tell people that you went through treatment for substance abuse. You don’t have to tell anyone if you don’t want to. Privacy laws are in place to protect you.
