DPT, in conjunction with other CSAT offices and divisions, is conducting a national study of the effect of accreditation on opioid addiction treatment programs (OTPs). Through DPT, CSAT works with staff of other Federal agencies, including the Food & Drug Administration, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the Drug Enforcement Administration, to coordinate policy on opioid treatment.
