CONFIDENTIALITY ATTITUDES AND PRACTICES
The Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) and the non-profit public health organization Vital Strategies are conducting this survey to understand attitudes and practices related to Pennsylvania’s substance use confidentiality statutes and regulations. More information about this project can be found on DDAP’s website, here.
Your answers to this survey will help DDAP understand:
- Perceptions of current confidentiality statutes and regulations;
- How Pennsylvania’s requirements shape access to services for people who are enrolled in or in need of services for substance use disorder (SUD);
- Current statutes and regulations in the context of our state’s public health response to the overdose crisis and national overdose response efforts; and
- The role and effectiveness of current policies in protecting client data, mitigating social harms, addressing stigma, and supporting health and service quality.
Your feedback will help DDAP ensure that the agency’s policies are consistently supporting and helping to meet the needs of people living with SUD.
Your replies to this survey will be anonymous. Identifying information (such as your name, address, telephone number, etc.) will not be collected and should not be provided. The data collected in this survey will be used solely for the purposes set out above and will not be used or distributed for future research studies.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.
