NAMA Recovery Submits Public Comments on proposed revision to SUD Confidentiality Rule 42 CFR Part 2

HIPAA is not good enough for criminalized and stigmatized health information, such as records related to substance use disorder (SUD) care! Aligning 42 CFR Part 2 (the federal regulations governing SUD treatment records) with HIPAA will not only discourage people from entering life-saving addiction treatment, but it will also put patients at risk of arrest, prosecution, incarceration, and discrimination based on their past substance use.
