Notice of rights

The Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB) tries to provide the best possible services. As a person receiving CSB services, you have rights that are protected by government regulations. No one may take away your rights, except in rare special cases. The following is a summary of these rights. If you need help in understanding them or how they apply to you, please contact a staff member. (Visit our Complaints and Concerns page.)

You have the right:

  • to be treated with dignity and respect;
  • to receive services regardless of your race, national origin, sex, age, religion, handicap or ability to pay;
  • to help develop your treatment program plan;
  • to privacy;
  • to confidential handling of records;
  • to be protected from harm and abuse;
  • to receive services in a safe and clean place;
  • to ask questions and get help with your rights;
  • to have your complaints resolved; and
  • to review the Human Rights Plan of the CSB.

If you believe your rights have been taken away, you may follow these steps:

  • Call or write the supervisor or program director with your complaint.
  • If your complaint is unresolved, you may ask for a formal hearing. Staff will tell you how to submit the request.

Call Kevin Paluszak, Human Rights Consultant at 703-323-2098 or at the toll free number 1-877-600-7431. Kevin makes sure the rights of individuals in community programs are respected.

Confidentiality

  • Confidentiality means that any information you reveal to a staff member must be kept confidential. We cannot reveal any information about you to anyone outside of this agency without your written permission or under direct order of a court.
  • All information regarding your participation in CSB services and your personal life is kept confidential. Federal law, our own professional ethics, and our concern for your general welfare require that we uphold your right to privacy. We will not reveal any information about you to anyone outside of this agency without a “release of information” form signed by you. We are legally required to report any suspected child abuse or neglect and to warn any individual who we believe may be in danger of physical harm. In addition, we may report pertinent information to medical personnel in case of a medical emergency, or if a crime is committed at the program or against program personnel.
  • During your treatment at the Gartlan Center other individuals receiving treatment here will expect you to keep information they share with you confidential, and they will do the same for you. Any violation of someone’s confidentiality could have a negative impact on that person’s treatment and recovery. Such a violation can result in discharge from the program.

Here is how you can help us help you. Please…

  • Keep your scheduled appointments with your service providers and arrive on time.
  • Call to reschedule your appointment if you are unable to come as scheduled.
  • Let your service provider know if there is a change in your address, telephone number, income, insurance or family size.
  • Read the bulletin boards in the waiting area to find resource information and ways to connect with others in the community.
