Reporting Ethical Problems

The Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals requires all certified individuals to sign and adhere to a current Code of Ethical Conduct. Any person aware of an ethical violation by a certified substance abuse professional has the right to file a formal Ethical Complaint against the individual.

Procedures for Filing Ethical Complaints

A person wishing to file a complaint against a certified substance abuse professional may do so by obtaining and filling out a formal complaint form which must be filed in writing. All complaint forms must have the name, address and telephone number of the complainant (person filing the complaint) and name, address, employer and telephone number of the certified substance abuse professional. A description of the inappropriate conduct, when it occurred, others who may have pertinent information, and the complainant signature are also required.
