This study is based on the book The Book of Ethics: Expert Guidance for Professionals who Treat Addiction which gathers an interesting group of authors who offer expertise and thoughts on ethical issues ranging from harm reduction and boundaries with clients to stigma and spirituality. Psychiatric ethicists Cynthia Geppert and Laura Weiss Roberts tackle issues of autonomy, respect for persons, confidentiality, truth telling and nonmaleficence, setting the standard for contemporary ethical practices. These challenges are illuminated with real-world case examples that show potential effects on diverse patient populations.
