RECO Intensive Renews Joint Commission and DCF Accreditations
Delray Beach, FL 2019— RECO Intensive has renewed both their JCAHO and DCF Accreditations this year. Both the Joint Commission and DCF hold hospitals and treatment institutions to the highest quality and ethical standards. The process for becoming accredited with both of the organizations is rigorous and includes in-depth surveys of the entire company. Including but not limited to, housing, the facility itself, charts, finances, and even HR records. To receive these accreditations businesses such as RECO Intensive must surpass the needed standards in each category to remain accredited. This year RECO Intensive not only reinstated their accreditation but received praise on the way the company is handled, on how the clients are treated, and even within their extensive record keeping.
Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations
Joint Commission accreditation requirements address the organization’s performance in specific areas and specify requirements to ensure that care, treatment, and services are provided based on quality and in a safe manner. A trauma-informed, recovery/resilience-oriented philosophy and approach to care, treatment, and services are embedded in the requirements. The Joint Commission develops its requirements in consultation with behavioral health care experts, providers, measurement experts, as well as individuals served. The Joint Commission’s accreditation process concentrates on operational systems critical to the safety and quality of care, treatment or services provided to the individual. Surveys are conducted by experienced and licensed behavioral health care professionals, including psychologists, social workers, professional counselors, behavioral health care nurses, and administrators. Many Joint Commission surveyors are actively working in a range of behavioral health care settings.
Department of Children and Families
The Department of Children and Families or DCF follows many of the same guidelines as the Joint Commission with some changes that are specific to the Florida area. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Program Office is responsible for oversight of the licensure and regulation of all substance abuse providers in the state. Licensure functions are implemented by the staff of SAMH Program Offices at the local levels throughout the state. The provision of substance abuse services is governed by Chapters 394 and 397 of the Florida Statutes, which provide direction for a continuum of community-based services including prevention, treatment, and detoxification services.
When looking for a quality treatment center is important to note whether the business is Joint Commission and DCF accredited. While DCF accreditation applies only to centers located in the state of Florida, the Joint Commission is nationwide. If you are looking for intensive outpatient treatment in Florida ensure that the center you are speaking with has both of these logos next to its name. This ensures that the company itself is run ethically and the program they provide is done with the best interest of their clients in mind.
