Code of Ethics

The Code of Ethics is the central guiding document for safe and ethical practice in addiction treatment and intervention in Aotearoa. It was developed in partnership with key people in the addiction treatment sector, including those from diverse ethnic, cultural, employment, and practice backgrounds.

All dapaanz members agree to abide by the Code of Ethics and will be held responsible for a breach of these ethics. This accountability provides practitioners, services and clients with a high level of assurance of the commitment to professionalism of dapaanz members.
