Laws and Ethics for Addiction Professionals

Learning Goal: I’m working on a public health writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.

Presented below are a series of situations that might be encountered by an addictions/recovery counselor. Using the material included in this course such as Legal and Ethical Issues for Addiction Professionals, the codes of conduct, and the Technical Assistance Publications from the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, write how you believe a professional ethical counselor should respond in each situation. Each answer should include the action(s) you would take and the rationale behind your actions. Suggested length is 200-400 words for each situation.

You have just entered an open meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous that you regularly attend as part of your ongoing recovery program. You see a client who has just been added to your caseload and who you have met with on two occasions. What should you do?

You work in a residential treatment program and have just heard a rumor that a current client was seen drinking in the company of a former counselor. How should you respond to the rumor?

You have been counseling a client for some time who has just revealed that his daughter, who is in the custody of his ex-wife, is being regularly verbally abused by her mother, and he fears she may be the victim of physical abuse as well. What should you do?

A client that you have been seeing individually for several months has asked you to call his probation officer to verify his involvement in your counseling sessions as well as his attendance at 12-step meetings in the community. How should you respond to the client?
