On September 4, 2014, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC) passed the first set of regulations advanced by the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP). As reported, a small group of RCPA members worked for several months reviewing the regulations line-by-line. RCPA is pleased to report that all of the recommendations from the association were accepted by DDAP and, after a long process, the Drug and Alcohol Facilities and Services and companion Standards for Licensure of Freestanding Treatment Facilities were approved unanimously by IRRC.
