Standards and Accreditations
Clouds House aligns itself with formalised standards such as Quality in Alcohol and Drugs Services (QUADS) and Drug and Alcohol National Occupational Standards (DANOS).
It is still one of very few centres in the UK to have submitted to independent external evaluation. It subscribes to the principles and practices that are encompassed by the Investors in People standard, which the Charity was awarded in 2001 and which was renewed in 2010.
Clouds House is registered as a Care Home with Nursing with the Care Quality Commission, and placed in the lowest risk category.
The Commission's inspection reports can be viewed on its web site
Action on Addiction is the first and only specialist addiction treatment provider in the UK to achieve accreditation from the Healthcare Accreditation & Quality Unit (HAQU) of CHKS (Caspie Healthcare Knowledge Systems) for the whole organisation which encompasses all Client Services, including Clouds House.
