What Is An Accreditation?

Accreditation involves a meticulous review process to evaluate healthcare programs and determine if they meet established quality standards. It’s important to note that accreditation is not a permanent status. Instead, programs must renew their accreditation by participating in routine assessments to ensure the ongoing maintenance of quality policies and procedures.

Accreditation serves as the official recognition that a substance abuse treatment network adheres to internationally recognized healthcare service standards and best practices. Through ongoing consultations and thorough on-site reviews, accrediting bodies ensure that addiction treatment centers continue to provide the highest quality of care.
