LVRC Ethical Standards (LPN Staff)

“When we encounter a client, we are obligated to do our best to treat them fairly and honestly, and to do no harm,” said Medical Director, Harry Duran, MD, MPH, Ph.D. “The delivery of care at LVRC is very friendly. We have a team that works very hard to develop rapport with the client.”

To demonstrate our sincerity, our facility works closely with our clients, as well as with the state of Nevada and various other distinguished organizations. We do so to verify that our care is reputable.

The Joint Commission recognizes LVRC for our quality and safety-focused care and accredits our Detoxification Opioid Treatment Program. LVRC is also licensed by the U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to dispense methadone as part of the withdrawal process.

Every individual seeking the best treatment has different needs; this is why LVRC counselors and therapists create unique programs to ensure our clients reach their full potential and recovery.

“We have a treatment team that is strictly committed to ethical standards and providing quality care,” said Chief Medical Officer, Mel Pohl, MD, DFASAM. “Our team of experts are committed to providing the kind of care that we know the client needs.”

Throughout the recovery process, our ethics are a priority. We assure professional boundaries, ensure client confidentiality, and our staff is experienced and hold sufficient training and certification. Each client will always have the right to give consent before any practice or treatment plan begins.

“Ethics are important for an organization because as a client, you depend on us to provide excellent service,” said Dr. Pohl.
