Foundations Wellness Center is proud to announce that we have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Excellence in Behavioral Health Care! By demonstrating above board compliance and exceeding performance standards in providing quality substance abuse treatment, our program is now officially JCAHO accredited.
What does the JCAHO Gold Seal represent?
JCAHO stands for the Joint Commission of Accredited Healthcare Organizations. The Gold Seal of Approval is a renown symbol of virtue that reflects our company’s ongoing commitment to providing quality, safe, and effective care for those seeking help with addiction or alcoholism.
Most importantly to us, the Gold Seal also represents a culmination of the behind-the-scenes efforts given by our clinical team over the past year to curate and develop a truly successful substance abuse program that is beneficial to both clients and their loved ones.
Why is being accredited important?
Receiving a Joint Commission Accreditation involves inviting outside experts to conduct a review of a healthcare organization to both validate and improve the quality of care and treatment services that are provided. It can be a very daunting task to undergo, especially within an industry as highly regulated as substance abuse.
Many organizations have benefited from a Joint Commission accreditation, as it helps their program move to the next level in clinical care and compliance. By providing a more structured framework for organizations to employ, the Joint Commission helps create a culture of excellence that provides significant value over a long-term period.
