Joint Commission Accreditation
When you are searching for help for your teenager, you want to be sure that you can trust the treatment center and that the care your child will receive there will be of the highest quality. It’s important to be careful, particularly when your son’s mental and physical health are at stake.
Why is Joint Commission Accreditation Important?
ARCH Academy offers the quality of care your family needs and deserves, as proven by the gold standard in healthcare, accreditation by the Joint Commission. A center that has Joint Commission accreditation has demonstrated its dedication to providing evidence-based treatment that leads to positive outcomes.
Accreditation requires a lengthy and detailed process that involves on-site visits, first-hand observations of how we operate, and an objective review of the quality of our performance. We earned this accreditation by demonstrating that we are a trusted and effective organization.
Safe, High Quality Care
The Joint Commission’s standards set the expectations for “important patient, individual, or resident care and organization functions that are essential to providing safe, high quality care.” That’s our focus at ARCH Academy, proven by our accreditation and by the results of those who come to us for help.
