what recourse can i take..i am currently a client at a non profit organization for veterans and reported being provoked by a staff member over the last several months.In addition my personal progress is rumored all over this facility which i have only shared with my case manager..this have made me physically sick and is putting my recovery at rick.what can i do..
As a client of this non-profit organization, I suspect you are entitled to confidentiality of your personal progress. I recommend meeting with the supervisor of the organization and discussing the breach of confidentiality, as well as your current feelings as a result of the breach. Perhaps you can be assigned to a new case manager or a new location within the organization to continue your recovery. The organization should have material on their website or at their facility advising clients of their rights. Make sure you get this information should the behavior continue. I am sorry to hear this is causing you anguish and a setback in your recovery. If the issues cannot be resolved within the organization, I recommend consulting with a local attorney to discuss further action. Best of luck to you!
Start with the supervisor of the facility and complain. Put you complaint in writing. Ask that you receive an acknowledgment of your complaint and that something will be done about it.
