The Joint Commission is an independent organization that rates healthcare facilities in the United States. The Joint Commission also evaluates rehabilitation centers, checking that the facilities meet standards for patient rights, medication management, and emergency preparedness. The Joint Commission also ensures that doctors, nurses, and other medical practitioners are qualified and certified.
When researching drug and addiction rehabilitation facilities, it’s important to determine if The Joint Commission, or CARF, has accredited that rehab center. For example, if they have consistently passed Joint Commission inspections, it shows that the facility meets important criteria that contribute to a safe, professional healing environment.
Here at Beachway, we’re proud to say we are accredited by The Joint Commission and intend to maintain that accreditation in the future.
