Cost: Free


Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

New England ADA Center, member of the ADA National Network and NAADAC, Association for Addiction Professionals

Description:

There are thousands of people in recovery from addiction unaware of their civil rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This presentation will provide information on the ADA and how it applies to individuals in treatment for or recovery from substance use disorders (SUDs). It will also explain how the ADA addresses alcohol, in addition to providing a general review of the law and cases that have interpreted the ADA’s protections for these individuals. This presentation will provide examples of instances when a person is covered under the ADA and how healthcare providers, advocates, attorneys, and others who help individuals with SUDs can support their client or patient’s ADA rights. This includes a discussion of where to file complaints if it appears that an individual’s ADA rights are being violated.
