This report details and discusses the psychometric analysis of the South African Addiction Treatment Service Assessment measurement instrument (SAATSA). The SAATSA was developed by the Service Quality Measurement (SQM) initiative, a project funded by the Centres for Disease Control and located at the Medical Research Council (MRC). The SQM and the SAATSA was initiated to address the glaring lack of proper metrics for the assessment of service quality in the treatment of substance abuse in South Africa. The initiative is based on similar efforts in the United States, and began its work by adoption of some of the learning and measurement protocols from the US work.
