What is JCAHO Accreditation?
For healthcare providers to remain relevant in the industry, they are required to continually meet with and learn new skills and procedures needed to save lives. The drug addiction crisis throughout the country is taking many lives and it’s paramount for addicts, alcoholics, and families to have reputable treatment choices that follow the highest standards of patient care.
The Joint Commission (previously the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) is a not-for-profit organization that certifies and accredits nearly 21,000 healthcare providers, including over 1,900 behavioral health care organizations in the United States.
Garden State Treatment Center is a JCAHO accredited drug and alcohol treatment center located in Sparta, New Jersey. As a testament to our superior quality of patient care, we’ve met and exceeded the rigorous standards set by the Joint Commission.
Some of our clients and staff may have wondered: “Why embark on the complex process of obtaining a JCAHO accreditation?” It is safe to say that patients treated at a JCAHO accredited rehabilitation center can expect to receive a higher quality of healthcare services than providers without it.
