Licensing and Accreditation
Addiction treatment is a life-changing event, which makes it so important to find the best, most qualified treatment center for you or your loved one. When a treatment center is accredited, they are held to a higher standard- one that is very strict and unbiased.
Accredited by the Joint Commission and Licensed by the Florida Department of Children and Families
Not every drug rehab facility is accredited. Choose a facility with the necessary state licensing, as well as accreditation by a reliable accreditation firm such as The Joint Commission or the Florida Department of Children and Families. Accredited facilities are not all identical, but they have all met certain criteria for both methods of treatment and the facility itself. The Joint Commission accreditation process consists of an independent and unbiased review of rehab facilities and practices. This review is then compared to national statistics and only the highest quality facilities are given the gold seal of accreditation.
How Does a Treatment Center Become Accredited?
The standards for certification are very strict and must be accompanied by a track record of exceptional patient success and quality patient care. Joint Commission accredited rehab facilities must continue to meet these standards on an ongoing basis to remain accredited. When you see the Joint Commission and Florida Department of Children and Families seal, you can be assured that you’re looking at a high-quality drug addiction treatment center that provides excellent care.
