Development of a quality framework for Australian Government funded drug and alcohol treamtent services

Turning Point were awarded a contract by DoHA to develop a quality framework for Australian Government funded drug and alcohol treatment services.

The quality framework aims to complement work completed or currently underway by governments within the drug and alcohol treatment services sector to better understand and improve service quality and inform future planning needs.

The intention was for the quality framework to be developed in collaboration with the states and territories and drive quality improvement in treatment service delivery and improved client outcomes. For more information head to Turning Point by clicking here.
