If you’re looking for a treatment facility for yourself or a loved one, you’ve probably already realized that there are countless centers to choose from. Simply searching for “rehab near me” probably won’t help you to narrow things down. When this is the case, it’s important to look for indicators that a treatment center is legitimate, and that its approach is based in scientific research. We recommend looking for facilities that are licensed, certified, and accredited by major organizations. Pillars Recovery is proud to have received ongoing endorsement from two such groups: The Joint Commission and the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS).
Joint Commission Accredited Rehab (HCO ID 597434)
The Joint Commission’s full name is The Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO for short). This non-profit group serves a vital purpose in the behavioral health community. As the oldest and most respected accrediting body in our industry, its criteria are exceptionally rigorous. This means that if you see a treatment center with Joint Commission accreditation, that facility has proven to be exceptional in the following areas:
- Evidence-based treatment
- Patient care and safety
- Treatment environment
- Continuing education and leadership
- Case management
- Medication safety
- Psychological and chemical assessment
At Pillars Recovery, we have exceeded the criteria laid out by The Joint Commission. Our focus on patient-first care has helped us to achieve outstanding outcomes for the people who entrust us with their recovery.
It is important to note that Joint Commission accreditation is a fully voluntary process, and it’s one that requires ongoing commitment. Pillars Recovery doesn’t rest on our laurels. Instead, we regularly update our policies, provide continued education opportunities to our staff, and renovate our center for improved patient experience.
