Nelson Hardiman LogoJoin Nelson Hardiman and the American Addiction Treatment Association (AATA) on July 6th for “The Practice of Medicine and Social Model Alcohol and Drug Programs.” Learn more about how addiction treatment facilities operate safely and compliantly with physician oversight despite the byzantine laws prohibiting them from working with doctors.

Overview: In general, drug treatment programs are licensed and certified as “social model,” non-medical programs and many states prohibit such programs from employing or contracting with doctors. In such states, corporate practice of medicine laws requires health professionals to provide services directly to patients.  Drug treatment patients often need medical attention for health issues relating to drug use and mental health treatment for co-occurring disorders. These laws are widely misunderstood, resulting in illegal relationships between treatment programs and physicians as well as unsafe practices.
