Code of Conduct

All CODAC staff must abide by a Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct defines and guides the services we provide and the manner in which services are provided.

CODAC's Code of Conduct is available to read in the lobby of each site.


The confidentiality of records maintained by CODAC are protected by Federal laws and regulations.

CODAC may disclose information identifying an individual as a member if:

  • The person gives permission in writing.
  • The disclosure is allowed by a court order.
  • The disclosure is made to medical personnel in a medical emergency or to qualified personnel for research, audit, or program evaluation.

Violation of the Federal law and regulations by a program is a crime. Suspected violations may be reported to appropriate authorities in accordance with Federal regulations.
