Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to critically reflect on the usefulness of quality standards aimed at prevention interventions for drug using young offenders.
Design/methodology/approach: This paper uses critical literature on quality standards, readings of quality standards and qualitative interviews as well as focus-group discussions with professionals working in services targeting drug use among young offenders.
Findings: The findings show discrepancies between the idea that quality standards provide a tool for supporting the implementation of more effective interventions and professionals' experiences with quality standards as almost absent in their work.
Originality/value: This viewpoint highlights barriers to the implementation of quality standards that have to be overcome if quality standards are to be adopted and implemented in practice.
