46 Supplementary Information Mandated Reports of Child Abuse or NeglectAll States require people in certain positions or occupations to report cases of suspected child abuse or neglect to the relevant child welfare authorities.In 1986, the Federal regulations were amended to permit substance abuse programs to comply with such laws. Today, the Federal regulations "do not apply to the reporting under State law of incidents of suspected child abuse and neglect to the appropriate State or local authorities."
47 Supplementary Information, 2 This means that program staff may make reports to local child abuse hotlines and even confirm the reports in writing. However, the regulations "continue to apply to the original alcohol or drug abuse patient records maintained by the program including their disclosure and use for civil or criminal proceedings which may arise out of the report of suspected child abuse and neglect."
48 Supplementary Information, 3 This means that while a program may make State-mandated child abuse reports, it must still protect patient records from subsequent disclosures (even as against local child welfare investigators) and, absent patient consent or a court order, may not permit them to be used in child abuse proceedings against the patient.
