The American Addiction Treatment Association (AATA) is a national trade association that provides online resources and training events, including state-by-state compliance requirements for licensing and certification, operations, reimbursement, clinical standards, patient privacy, quality assurance, and risk management.
AATA delivers reliable information and resources on compliance and best practices to enable recovery industry professionals, owners and operators to navigate the evolving clinical and regulatory landscapes. AATA tracks industry trends, federal and state rules and regulations, and payor activity and requirements.
In the past several years, the addiction treatment industry has undergone a transformation, with confusing and rapidly shifting compliance requirements. The next decade promises more of the same: unprecedented changes in treatment models, licensing requirements, reimbursement strategies; as well as emerging standards on documentation, patient safety, quality of care, and evidence based treatment. Efforts to combat fraud and prevent abuse will add new challenges. Monitoring and staying ahead of these changes will be paramount to the industry’s survival and future prosperity. The American Addiction Treatment Association prepares members to face the challenges ahead.
AATA's cornerstone is timely education about the challenges facing addiction treatment facilities, programs and professionals and practical solutions. In cooperation with legal experts, we meticulously track, organize, and interpret current compliance and regulation issues at both state and national levels, translating them into practical action steps. AATA members will have access to the most reliable, comprehensive tools needed to improve practices, manage risks and develop an effective roadmap for compliance.
Let AATA clear your path to compliance and keep you safe!
