NSW Health Clinical Care Standards: Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment
Return to COQI homepage
The Clinical Care Standards for Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment (the Standards) outline the core elements of care that underpin treatment within the alcohol and other drug treatment sector in NSW.
These standards apply to all alcohol and drug treatment service types and locations and do not identify specific interventions used in treatment. The intention is to detail foundational elements of care, support clinical decision making and complement rather than replicate other sources of information that guide the delivery of high-quality and safe treatment.
- the purpose of the Standards
- the principles that underpin the Standards
- how each Standard highlights the treatment and care that people accessing treatment can expect when they seek AOD treatment, and
- where to get further information and support for implementation.
