Ensuring that a facility you choose is state licensed or certified, holds an accreditation, and has been certified by varying organizations shows that their policies, procedures, protocols, and staff have been vetted by important regulating bodies. Holding a state license means the Department of Health Care Services approves the services the facility provides. When a facility has an accreditation, this means that they have been audited and visited by hospital-level assessors who have looked through the facility’s client charts, all the staff’s licenses, and the entire standards book of the facility and has approved the entire facility’s operations. Certifications that a facility holds will show what is most important to the staff within the organization including behavioral health innovations, best practices, training their staff using the newest and most up to date mental health and addiction methods and more.
