The SA(CAT) Act relies on the assessment of impaired decision making capacity to use compulsion to provide treatment for severe substance addiction. Authorised officers, approved specialists and responsible clinicians all need to make some level of assessment of a person’s capacity to make decisions about treatment when considering use of the Act. While impaired capacity to make decisions about addiction treatment can be transitory, for many people it may be long term and indicate a level of cognitive impairment.
International leaders talk about peer-led and humane alternatives to standard service delivery.
