National quality framework for drug and alcohol treatment services
This framework sets a nationally consistent quality benchmark for providers of AOD treatment services. It includes strong clinical governance requirements and a list of accreditation standards that AOD specialist treatment service providers must meet. The framework includes a transition period of three years. During this time treatment service providers must work towards meeting the requirements. The transition period started on 28 November 2019 and will finish on 28 November 2022. See the framework.
