5) Part 2 protects all information about any person who has applied for or been given diagnosis or treatment for alcohol or drug abuse at a federally assisted program.

6) The “general rules” established by Part 2 and the Privacy Rule regarding uses and disclosures of patient health information are virtually identical in all aspects.
