Confidentiality Policy*

WE CAN is committed to making this a safe space for all of us.

Our policy on confidentiality states that everything participants share with staff and volunteers is confidential unless a participant shares they are going to hurt themselves or someone else, or if a child, elder or disabled person is being abused or neglected.

Within our groups and workshops, participants will keep confidential all that is shared in the meetings. WE CAN staff reserves the right to ask a participant to leave our programming if we have reason to believe that the confidentiality of the group is violated.

Substance Use Policy*

WE CAN requires that a participant be sober and not use alcohol or drugs on the day of a walk in, appointment, workshop or group. This is necessary for WE CAN to provide a safe space for our programming and events and to support women in recovery as well as women who have been impacted by loved ones who have or had a substance use disorder.

If a participant appears intoxicated or under the influence of drugs, WE CAN will ask the participant to leave the group, workshop, appointment etc and arrange a sober ride home (friend, family, taxi) with assistance from WE CAN.  If a participant leaves the premises while driving a vehicle and appearing intoxicated/under the influence of drugs, the WE CAN staff/intern/volunteer must call the police to notify them with the participant’s name and a description of the vehicle. 

WE CAN staff and volunteers reserve the right to call local Rescue at 911 if we have serious concerns about a participant’s health (including intoxication/under the influence of drugs) to ask Rescue to make an assessment.

COVID Policy

WE CAN's COVID policy evolves in response to current local COVID conditions and health guidelines. In general, we encourage mask wearing, but do not require masks. We can provide a mask for anyone who requests one. If you are feeling unwell on the day of your appointment, please call our office and we will arrange for the appointment to be held by phone or videoconference. 

If you have an in-person appointment and local conditions have changed to the point where we require masks in our office, we will let you know at the time of your confirmation call. Thank you.
