Ethics Reform in the Treatment Industry Progresses

Written by:

at March 7, 2017

Ethics and marketing remain the two (2) glaringly key issues surrounding the delivery of patient care services within the Substance Use Disorder space.

That was made abundantly clear this past weekend during the 2017 SUD Talks in Delray Beach, Florida, where featured speaker Heather Hayes-Davidson discussed the Ethics Pledge that her organization has been circulating to all providers. We strongly encourage all to take the time, sign the pledge, and become a part of a larger movement towards transparency on patient brokering, evidence-based care, as well as high ethics and morals for our industry. We are not just providing medicine; we are providing hope.

Concurrently, the exceptional Behavioral Healthcare Executive magazine and its Editor, Julie Miller, put together a phenomenal study examining ethical behaviors of providers within this industry, which outcome was published just last week and can be accessed here: http://www.behavioral.net/article/ethics/ethics-survey-behavioral-health-leaders-examine-unethical-schemes

We are extremely proud to have been a pivotal part of that study and sincerely thank Behavioral Healthcare Executive for giving us the opportunity to participate.
