Standard Sets

Addiction

The ICHOM Standard Set for Addiction, including disorders related to substance use and addictive behaviours, is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts, and lived experience experts. It represents the outcomes that matter most to adults and young people with disorders related to substance use and addictive behaviours. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their service users.
