Yes, DOH provides training for DDE.

There is no known government directive. If the LGU health officer underwent training and part of their responsibility is to support CBDR services, they should be providing. Local chief executives should call on the attention of their health officers on this matter.

Write to the Department of Health regional offices regarding request for training.

There is no existing accreditation for CBDR programs. At the minimum, based on Board Regulation no. 7, as long as the service providers conforms with the 12 principles of community- based treatment prescribed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), DDB and DOH, then, that organization can offer the service.

Presently, DOH has no accreditation process for CBDRP. Hence aside from the organization complying with the 12 principles, they should also be endorsed by any relevant government organization.

The training from DOH was halted due to the pandemic. Online modules are currently being developed. In the meantime, ADACs or MADACs are encouraged to attend webinars to gain information on related topics.

They can be but it is not necessary for an MHO to become a CBDR services. What they can do is build a CBDR service delivery network where they can refer PWUDs to an appropriate intervention- giving body.

A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the LGU could be sufficient proof of endorsement. There can also be an ADAC resolution but at the minimum, a MOA would do.

DOH is already preparing for an online SBIRT training.
