    Hi all.  Would like your thoughts on a situation which I haven't come across before now.  Parent is requesting their minor child's records be sent to another agency.  The parent has indicated they do not want any sensitive information sent (e.g. alcohol/drug use, HIV, etc - we've all seen that section about sensitive information).  The child has information in their record pertaining to FASD (fetal alcohol...)

    Q:  Would you consider this related to alcohol treatment and thus not release any FASD information?

    Call and talk to the parent and find out what they're requesting so you're all the same page.
