815.6 Patient responsibilities.
(a) Participation in treatment for an addiction disorder presumes a patient's continuing desire to acquire healthy habits and requires each patient to act responsibly and cooperatively with provider staff, in accord with an individual treatment/recovery plan and reasonable provider procedures. Therefore, each patient is expected to:
(1) work toward the goal of recovery;
(2) treat staff and other patients with courtesy and respect;
(3) respect other patients' right to confidentiality;
(4) participate in developing and following a treatment/recovery plan;
(5) become involved in productive activities according to ability;
(6) pay for services on a timely basis according to financial means;
(7) participate in individual counseling and/or group and/or family counseling sessions as applicable;
(8) inform medical staff if receiving outside medical services;
(9) address all personal issues adversely affecting treatment; and
(10) act responsibly and observe all provider rules, regulations and policies.
(b) Consequences for patient non-compliance.
(1) Provider policies and procedures to address patient non-compliance shall be designed to support a patient's positive response to treatment. Such policies and procedures must specify standards and expectations for patient conduct, and any consequences of non-compliance, including conduct which may result in treatment termination.
(2) Providers shall address patient non-compliance with timely and appropriate incremental interventions designed to assist patients in responding positively to treatment. Such incremental interventions shall be incorporated in the patient's treatment plan, be time-limited, and be documented in the patient's record.
(3) No treatment intervention or action can include delay or denial of any clinical, medical, or other required service vital to the health or recovery of the patient.
(4) Providers shall first warn patients of any conduct that could result in a recommendation of discharge with continued non-compliance, and must document such warning(s) in the patient's record.
