Substance Abuse Treatment Standards

The Substance Abuse Treatment standards were promulgated by the Wyoming Department of Health pursuant to W.S. § 9-2-2701 and the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act at W.S. § 16-3-101, et seq., to establish standards for community substance abuse prevention, early intervention, recovery support services and treatment services, and to provide a full continuum of quality, research-based, best practice substance abuse services to Wyoming citizens.  This certification also includes Court Ordered Supervised Treatment (Drug Courts).  Providers must also hold national accreditation through CARF, JCAHO, or a similar national accreditation agency as approved by the Division.
