Treatment of drug use disorders needs to be available, accessible, affordable, diversified and evidence-based. UNODC in coordination with the World Health Organization (WHO) developed a set of Quality Assessment and Quality Assurance Tools for drug use disorder treatment services as part of the implementation package of the International Standards for the Treatment of Drug Use Disorders (UNODC/WHO, 2020). National Quality Assurance mechanisms and institutions in a country can play an important role in the monitoring and assessment of drug use disorder treatment services against an agreed upon standard and help ensure that persons with drug use disorders have access to treatment that meets the same quality standards. Here International Expert Annette Dale-Perera talks about quality in treatment.
