The American Addiction Treatment Association (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 is a national trade association that provides online resources and training events, including state-by-state requirements for licensing and certification, operations, reimbursement, clinical standards, patient privacy, quality assurance, and risk management.
Accurate and timely information about compliance issues have been in short supply for the industry. In an environment of growing regulatory and payor scrutiny, compliance is critical for addiction treatment providers. Violations of regulatory requirements do have serious consequences. The next decade will be a time of unprecedented change, as treatment models, licensing requirements, and reimbursement strategies evolve. The industry will suffer increased regulatory burdens as new standards emerge on documentation, patient safety, quality of care, and evidence-based treatment.
Efforts to combat fraud and abuse are just beginning.
AATA tracks developing government enforcement and regulatory updates, payor activity and requirements, and emerging trends. We translate a confusing body of information into practical, actionable steps. Our resources enable members to improve practices, manage risks, and develop effective compliance. Additionally, AATA provides specialized resources for audits, risk assessments, education, and training.
