Service Quality Measures for South African Substance Abuse Treatment Services (SQM Project)

"The SQM project was designed as a participatory, collaborative effort between key stakeholders, the National Departments of Health and Social Development, the Central Drug Authority, universities, and substance abuse service provider programmes. It will help to increase the capacity of existing national efforts, including the Department of Social Development’s initiative to develop norms and standards for substance abuse treatment services and related efforts to register and accredit substance abuse treatment services as part of the Prevention of and Treatment for Substance Abuse Act (No. 70, 2008). The initiative is managed by the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Research Unit of the Medical Research Council (Cape Town)."
