As the number of people struggling with drugs and alcohol in the U.S. continues to grow, so does the number of addiction treatment centers. While getting help is vital in recovering successfully, finding a center with the correct accreditations is equally as important. Being accredited by national regulatory organizations ensures addiction treatment centers are administering therapies in appropriate ways and treating their clients with care.
BRC Healthcare has a gold seal of approval from the Joint Commission and partners with the National Association of Addiction Treatment Professionals and the Texas Association of Addiction, and Trac9 Informatics to ensure we are accountable to providing the best care possible. We are proud to provide high-quality addiction treatment to those who need it in our Texas rehab and sober living centers.

What Is Joint Commission Accreditation?
The Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO or “Joint Commission”) helps ensure client safety and care quality meet standards at healthcare organizations in the U.S.
A gold seal of approval from the Joint Commission symbolizes a treatment center’s commitment to and track record of providing clients with safe, high-quality care. A treatment center that has earned the prestigious Joint Commission gold seal of approval has been thoroughly evaluated for its efficacy and quality of care. This evaluation is ongoing and requires a site visit at regular intervals to maintain accreditation. Asking questions to find out if a program is a good fit is still important, but Joint Commission accreditation assures that the quality of care at that particular treatment center is independently considered by professionals outside of the facility.
We are pleased to have earned the gold seal of approval from the Joint Commission, ensuring clients and their families that the quality of care we provide is among the best in the addiction recovery field.
Why Addiction Treatment Accreditations Are ImportantAccreditation from the Joint Commission is a significant accomplishment in the healthcare field. The third-party non-profit organization certifies more than 20,000 healthcare organizations and programs throughout the country and evaluates addiction treatment centers on their commitment to quality and performance. Applying for Joint Commission accreditation is an entirely voluntary process. When a treatment center applies for accreditation, a team of experts visits to perform an onsite review, evaluating the center’s performance in several areas, including:
- Patient care and safety
- Evidence-based outcomes
- Environment of care
- Staff credentialing
- Continuing education
- Employee background checks
- Medication safety
