II. Our Privacy and Confidentiality Obligations
We are required by law to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of information about your
health, health care, and payment for services related to your health (referred to in this notice as
“protected health information” or “information”) and to provide you with this notice of our legal
duties and privacy practices with respect to your protected health information. When we use or
disclose this information, we are required to abide by the terms of this notice (or other notice in
effect at the time of the use or disclosure).
- Protected Health Information in connection with substance use disorder services:
42 CFR Part 2 protects your health information if you are applying for or receiving
services (including diagnosis or treatment, or referral) for substance use disorder.
Generally, if you are applying for or receiving services for substance use disorder, we
may not acknowledge to a person outside the program that you attend the program
except under certain circumstances that are listed in this notice.

applying for or receiving services for substance use disorder, the way we may use and
disclose information differs slightly. These differences are listed in this notice.

- Generally, we may use or disclose your protected health information when you give your

B. Health Care Operations. We may use or disclose your protected health information for the
purposes of health care operations that include internal administration and planning and various
activities that improve the quality and effectiveness of care. For example, we may use
information about your care to evaluate the quality and competence of our clinical staff. We may
disclose information to qualified personnel for outcome evaluation, management audits,
financial audits, or program evaluation; however, such personnel may not identify, directly or
indirectly, any individual patient in any report of such audit or evaluation, or otherwise disclose
patient identities in any manner. We may disclose your information as needed within Integrative

poses a substantial threat to the life or physical well being of the minor or any other individual
