The NAADAC Code of Ethics is vital to the legal and ethical delivery of services to individuals struggling with substance use and addictive behavior disorders.  The Revised Code of Ethics, effective October 9, 2016, is a reliable and credible reference tool that guides and informs services provided directly or indirectly, along the entire continuum of care.  Since the last revision, the types of services and the environment in which services are deliver has changed.  It is important that the NAADAC Code of Ethics reflect those changes and inform our practices.  This webinar is Part 1 of a 2-part webinar series.  We will discuss ethics broadly and then highlight key changes in Principles 1 and 2 to see how these principles will influence and direct your service delivery..

Learning Objectives
  • Define what a Code of Ethics is and its purpose.
  • Name 3 inherent values of ethical clinicians.
  • Describe 3 key points of Principle I: The Counseling Relationship.
  • Describe 3 key points of Principle II: Confidentiality and Privileged Communication.
