Please read and check off each statement, as your commitment to meet these intentions and expectations.
This will enable the most successful outcome for WE CAN workshops and group program offerings.
WE CAN Confidentiality Policy
WE CAN’s 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.
WE CAN’s Policy on Substance Use
WE CAN requires that a participant be sober and not use alcohol or drugs on the day of an 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 may 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 qualified professionals to make an assessment.
