A New Way of Thinking
Please Be aware that Payment for your session or group is required at the time of service. There is a No Show Fee for clients who do not contact the office to cancel their appointment (This may be waived in the event of an emergency).
Intake and Forms are necessary for our staff to provide quality care. Much of the information that is required it is often of a sensitive nature, so keep in mind that High Country Behavioral Health is committed to your privacy.
All information you share at this agency, even your presence is confidential. No information will be shared with anyone without your written consent. There are certain legal exceptions to disclosure of information that are explained in the paperwork and discussed during each intake session. Just as you would wish to be treated with respect and dignity and that your visit here is confidential, please treat others in the same manner.
Federal confidentiality rules (42-CFR Part 2) prevent the use of any information we have obtained to be used to criminally investigate or prosecute any alcohol or drug client. Disclosure of client identifying information is permitted if authorized by a court order, after application showing good cause.
In some cases it is important for your counselor to discuss your care with others that are directly involved with your situation. This may be a judge, proscribing doctor, or family member. If this is seen as beneficial then you may be asked to sign a release which will allow this communication.
