While Recovery Solutions Inc. goes to great lengths to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues that come to our attention that require intervention and/or action. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances. When a grievance arises pertaining to a Recovery Solutions Inc. Continuing Education program or process, the complainant is expected to notify the Director of Continuing Education, either by phone or in writing, as soon as possible so that the nature of the concern may be addressed in a timely fashion. When the grievance involves a social worker, the Director of Continuing Education and the CE Social Work Consultant will review complaints. The written response will document the complaint/grievance and the involvement of the Social Work CE Consultant in the discussion and resolution of the issue. If immediate resolution is not possible, the Director of Continuing Education, and if applicable the CE Social Work Consultant, together will bring the complaint to the Recovery Solutions Advisory Board. All possible care will be taken to uphold the confidentiality of the complainant. The Advisory Board will formulate a response to the complaint and recommend action if necessary, which will be conveyed directly to the complainant. For example, a grievance concerning a speaker will be conveyed to that speaker and to those planning future educational programs. A grievance concerning a workshop offering, content, facilities, or costs may be resolved by modifications to future offerings, and/or by providing an alternative training opportunity, should that be possible. Confidential records of all grievances, the process of resolving the grievance, and the outcome will be kept in locked files of the Director of Continuing Education. All applicable written complaints/grievances and the CE Program’s written response to the complaints/grievances are also reported to the ASWB within the Recovery Solutions Inc. ACE approval renewal application. Please contact the Director of Continuing Education to submit a complaint or if you have additional questions.
