The primary purpose of the Lee Day Report Center staff is to provide a program of counseling and instruction utilizing a curriculum that is evidence-based and which addresses client needs while at the same time addressing issues of public safety.
Clients are encouraged to talk with staff if any problems or questions arise during their time at the LDRC. The client controls whether their time at the LDRC is beneficial to them. What a client learns from the program is dependent upon what they put into it. Although clients are provided with a litany of useful information while attending the LDRC, only they control whether that information is put to good use once they leave the LDRC.
Hours of Operation
Each LDRC is open daily, Monday – Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The hours of operation for each LDRC coincide with the daily schedules that are posted at each site.
The LDRC observes holidays that are observed by the State of West Virginia. Closings for holidays or other reasons will be announced by staff and will be posted in the LDRC lobby in advance of the closing.
Consent for Disclosure of Information
In order to be accepted into the LDRC program, you must sign a release of information form to enable LDRC staff to contact your doctor or other medical professionals, as well as the courts, prosecuting attorneys, defense attorneys, probation officers, home incarceration officers, parole officers, in order to obtain and provide information relevant to your participation in LDRC programming.
Confidentiality of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Patient Records
The confidentiality of alcohol and drug abuse patient records maintained by the Lee Day Report Center is protected by Federal law and regulations. Generally, this program may not say to a person outside the program that a patient attends the program, or disclose any information identifying a patient has been, or is being, diagnosed or treated for a substance use disorder Unless:
- The patient consents in writing;
- The disclosure is allowed by court order; or
- 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.
Federal law and regulations do not protect any information about a crime committed by a patient either at the program or against any person who works for the program or about any threat to commit such a crime.
Federal law and regulations do not protect any information about suspected child abuse or neglect from being reported under state law to appropriate state or local authorities.
(See 42 U.S.C. 290dd-3 and 42 U.S.C. 290ee-3 for Federal laws and 42 CFR Part 2 for Federal regulations.)
LDRC Staff will treat clients with respect, dignity, and honesty and we expect the same courtesy from clients in their interactions with staff and other clients.
Clients are expected to report on time and check in with a staff person upon their arrival at the LDRC and to notify staff if they are going to be absent or will be arriving late for programming.
Clients are expected to report on time as scheduled for groups and/or meetings, submit to random urine tests, perform required community service hours, and constructively participate in all LDRC activities.
Staff of the LDRC works closely with probation officers, parole officers, prosecuting attorneys, and home incarceration staff to ensure the safety of the community and to help each client improve his/her life. It is hoped and expected that clients will invest the time and effort necessary to effectuate a positive change in their lives.
