Joint Commission Accredited Treatment in Austin, TX
When you’ve made the decision to get sober, it’s vital that you choose a treatment center that will help you meet your goals. But finding a program that offers the quality you expect and deserve can be challenging. How can you be sure you’re making the right decision?
The Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO or simply the Joint Commission) symbolizes a treatment center’s commitment to and track record of providing clients with safe, high-quality care. BRC Recovery is pleased to have earned Joint Commission accreditation, ensuring clients and their families that the quality of care we provide is among the best in the addiction recovery field.
A treatment center that has earned the prestigious Joint Commission approval has been thoroughly evaluated for its efficacy and quality of care. As a prospective client, of course, you will still need to ask questions to find out if a program is a good fit for you and your circumstances, but Joint Commission accreditation assures that the quality of care at that particular treatment center isn’t something you need to worry about.
Why Is JCAHO Accreditation Important?
Accreditation from the Joint Commission is a significant accomplishment in the health care field. The third-party non-profit organization certifies more than 20,000 health care organizations and programs throughout the United States and evaluates treatment centers on their commitment to quality and performance.
JCAHO 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
If the treatment center does not meet Joint Commission standards, accreditation is not awarded.
BRC Recovery: Joint Commission Accredited Addiction Treatment
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval is recognized worldwide as a symbol of quality. Accreditation isn’t something you can buy or apply for online. It’s an extremely rigorous process, and once an organization earns accreditation, it must work to maintain it.

When you have certain goals and expectations, you need a program that helps you achieve those goals and satisfies those expectations. You need a program that not only addresses addiction but advocates for your future.
