For a prospective patient, the choice they make about where to get addiction treatment is vitally important. The quality of care they get will likely have a direct effect on whether they can establish solid recovery. With so much on the line, each individual needs to make such decisions with great care. At a minimum, all of their attention should go towards accredited drug rehab centers. Anything less and there's an extra level of risk that comes into play.\r\nWhat Does Accredited Drug Rehab Centers Mean?\r\nIf a drug rehab center holds accreditation from a well-established licensing organization, the center has industry standing. The accreditation generally represents that the center has met the minimum requirements for recognition as a viable healthcare provider. When all other things are equal, some form of accreditation takes on greater meaning. For the most part, it means that accredited drug rehab centers take greater care to maintain certain facility and treatment standards.\r\n\r\nFor the addiction treatment industry, rehab centers desire accreditation from the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations or JCAHO. Recently JCAHO has changed its name to simply "the Joint Commission." In every standard they set forth, the Joint Commission seeks to assure patients they can expect a higher level of quality care. Beaches Recovery is a Joint Commission accredited drug rehab center.\r\nThe Accreditation Process\r\nThe decision to seek Joint Commission accreditation is a business decision. Why? Accredited drug rehab centers get more business. They carry a "seal of approval" that makes it clear that they offer the best treatment services possible according to industry standards.\r\n\r\nIt's up to each rehab organization to request Joint Commission accreditation. By doing so, they subject themselves to a surprise inspection every 39 months at a minimum. During this investigation, field inspectors will investigate the facility and random patient records. They are generally looking for consistency and an indication of quality care. They will also interview patients for information and request data from the facility every three months. If everything meets the Joint Commissions standards, the facility receives its accreditation, good for the next 39 months.\r\nHigh-Level Care at Beaches Recovery\r\nOur Jacksonville Beaches Recovery facility is proud of its standing as an accredited treatment provider.
