Every person who receives alcohol or drug treatment services has certain rights protected by law. Your rights specific to substance use treatment services are spelled out in the Administrative Rules for Substance Abuse Programs in Michigan, and in other State and Federal laws
Some of your rights include:.
- the right to confidentiality (privacy)
- the right to be free from abuse and neglect
- the right to services that meet your needs
- the right to be treated with dignity and respect
You have many other rights when you receive substance use treatment services. Ask your treatment provider for a copy of the pamphlet, “Know Your Rights,” or call the Macomb County Office of Substance Abuse (MCOSA) at 586-469-5278 and ask to speak to the Substance Abuse Rights Advisor.
