QuaTheDA: Promoting quality in addiction work

QuaTheDA stands for Quality Therapy Drugs Alcohol and is the quality standard applied by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) in addiction assistance, prevention and health promotion.

The requirements of the standard are defined in the QuaTheDA Reference System. This modular reference system covers all areas of outpatient and inpatient addiction assistance as well as prevention and health promotion.

With the QuaTheDA standard, the FOPH is pursuing its strategic aim of promoting a uniform and universally valid understanding of quality. At the same time, it is helping to professionalise work carried out in addiction assistance and health promotion. In this way, the FOPH is supporting long-term quality development and creating optimum conditions for a continuous quality improvement in both services and results. In working out the measures required, the FOPH and its partners pool their experience and build a shared understanding of quality.
