42 CFR Part 2 Webinar Series

Health centers are expanding their substance use disorder services in response to the opioid epidemic: training current staff, hiring additional personnel, and developing teams dedicated to diagnosing and treating patients with substance use disorders. They are also partnering with other organizations – from hospitals to detox programs and inpatient facilities to law enforcement and research organizations. Health centers are receiving substantial grant funding from HRSA, SAMHSA, and state/local governments to support the development of these substance use disorder services. 

As key health care providers in their communities, health centers are at the forefront when it comes to responding to the opioid epidemic; however, many health centers are uncertain whether they must comply with substance use disorder confidentiality regulations at 42 CFR Part 2 (“Part 2”). Part 2 applies to substance use disorder records which are maintained in connection with the performance of a federally-assisted Part 2 program. Part 2 also applies to entities that are “lawful holders” of substance use disorder records from a federally-assisted Part 2 program.
