Substance Abuse Treatment Certification Rule
The Substance Abuse Treatment Certification Rule provides certification and operational requirements for Vermont Department of Health approved and preferred providers.
Preferred Providers - Substance Use Disorder Treatment Standards are the procedural guidelines of practice for all DSU-funded substance use disorder treatment services in Vermont.
The Compliance Assessment Tool (CAT) is used during site visits to determine a Preferred Provider’s level of certification compliance by:
- Providing transparency about the Preferred Provider's compliance status;
- Highlighting areas that require action or emphasis; and
- Evaluating the level and type of technical assistance needs.
