When something is as important as recovery in your life or the life of your loved one, quality matters. First Steps Recovery recently underwent the rigorous Joint Commission evaluation in order to guarantee that our treatment is the absolute best available, and we were awarded the Gold Seal of Approval.
The Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.
What the Gold Seal of Approval Means to You
Accreditation is a way of evaluating quality and safety as you make the vitally important decision on an addiction treatment center for you or your loved one. When you see the Gold Seal, you can be secure in the guaranteed delivery of critical services and patient care. Since accreditation is a continuous process, this also means First Step’s daily operations and systems are continually on the highest level of performance on a national level.
First Steps Recovery voluntarily underwent an unannounced, thorough on-site review of the quality and safety of care being provided and is committed to continuously meeting rigorous national standards, and we are very proud of this recognition of our commitment to continuous improvement and delivering safe, high-quality care.
