Aims of the Guidelines - These guidelines provide recommendations for residential treatment of people with drug or alcohol dependence. The intent of the guidelines is to increase the effectiveness of treatment and to improve treatment outcomes. They are based as far as possible on the evidence reported in peer reviewed literature. The Guidelines differentiate between services which provide residential care and those which provide residential treatment and make a further distinction between residential treatment services and therapeutic communities.
