At A Better Today, we understand the importance of being a substance abuse treatment center that continuously strives to grow and offers the best care possible. A Better Today has worked hard to become accredited by the Joint Commission who have offered accreditation in health and human services since 1969. Out of the 13,339 addiction treatment centers that responded to the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services, less than 20% of substance abuse treatment facilities were accredited by the Joint Commission. A Better Today is proud to be a part of that percentage of Joint Commission accredited treatment centers.
Accreditation by the Joint Commission assures that treatment centers stay ahead of the curve. The behavioral healthcare standards are put forth by the Joint Commission and come from a close analysis of the quickly changing behavioral healthcare field.
The Joint Commission focuses on requiring standards, such as state-of-the-art technologies and comprehensive proven guidelines that each substance abuse treatment center should strive to meet. Studies show that accreditation programs improve care and raise the amount of positive clinical outcomes within substance abuse treatment center organizations. Joint Commission accreditation signifies that the organization meets the general consensus for quality care in the behavioral health and substance abuse field.
Being accredited means that a treatment center cares about the supervision, qualifications, and overall leadership of their clinical staff and team. The Joint Commission requires physician oversight for certain services and staff must be certified to fulfill many of the positions within a treatment center. A Better Today meets these rigorous requirements and strives to continue to meet the standards set forth by the Joint Commission. Their requirements signify what has been proven as the best practice in substance abuse and behavioral health and is backed by extensive research and study from real data.
Being accredited is proof that A Better Today cares about the individual patient experience. Our accreditation gives assurances that our facility uses person-focused standards and understands the importance of individualized treatment versus a one-size-fits-all treatment model.
As an accredited treatment center, ABT proves that we have modeled our treatment the way that leading medical experts and professionals recommend and use only evidence-based treatment in our programs. ABT has worked diligently to ensure that our clinicians, staff, available treatments, and curriculum represent the highest standard of care possible.
