If your organization operates an Opioid Treatment Program (OTP), be sure to review the recent changes to the TJC Behavioral Health standards that apply to these programs. There are some changes to the following chapters:
- Care, Treatment and Services
- Medication Management
- Information Management
- Rights and Responsibilities of the Individual
Although the changes are not extensive, you should review them carefully to determine if any changes to your processes or policies are needed. To review the full text of the changes, see the June 2014 Joint Commission Perspectives article Revisions to Opioid Treatment Program Requirements.
