The FSAP ensures strict confidentiality that is governed by Florida State Law and Federal Regulations (42 CFR Part2) to protect clients. All FSAP services are confidential. No information regarding an employee’s participation in the FSAP is released unless the employee/client authorizes the release of specific information in writing. The only exception to confidentiality is law which mandates all licensed behavioral health professionals report child or elder abuse and that these professionals have a duty to keep people safe where there is a threat of harm to oneself, or to others.

Consultations are ordinarily conducted within on-site private office locations to ensure client comfort and privacy.  Clients may also arrange telephone consultations.
