The NASW Standards for Social Work Practice with Clients with Substance Use Disorders (SUD) is designed to enhance social workers' awareness, values, knowledge, skills, and methods of practice across settings, where priorities may vary greatly. The text is intended to inform social work practice and interventions with clients who have SUDs; improve the quality of treatment for clients with SUDs; and encourage social workers' awareness of the knowledge, skills, competencies, and attitudes necessary to work effectively with clients who have SUDs, their families, and other service providers.
