Information shared in counseling and/or testing situations is confidential and cannot be disclosed to any party outside the center without the client’s prior written consent. Confidentiality may be broken only: (a) if such disclosure is necessary to protect the client or someone else from imminent danger; (b) in cases of apparent ongoing child abuse; or (c) in those rare instances when courts subpoena counseling records. These exceptions to complete confidentiality are mandated by Rhode Island state law.
