Answer preview

Based on the NAADAC code of ethics, addiction professionals’ and treatment providers’ ability to do well is based on the well-being of others. As addiction professionals, their main aim should be to help others get well health-wise, and they should not do anything that can lead them to face the law (Durham, n.d). As a therapist, I would protect my client’s details so that they cannot be accessed or misused by a third party to harm the client as that will be going against the NAADAC code of ethics. As a therapist, my main goal is to heal and protect my client’s secrets.
