Hi Dr. Price
I recently had a discussion regarding the obligation of mental health practicioners and their ethic code.
Where I live if someone admitts that he has done a crime, plans to kill,... or things in this direction they have to be reported, by their therapist.
Does this rule apply also in the US?
What are the rules regarding drug abuse and minors?
Thanks
B

Doctors have a duty to protect potential victims such as children and elderly when there is abuse and/or neglect, and to warn any individual specified for harm by the perpetrator.

Drug abuse does not have to be reported unless it poses an imminent risk to self or or to others.
