Why License and Accreditation Is Important
In order to legally treat clients, treatment facilities must obtain a state license. In order to obtain a state license, our facility must meet the state’s expectation of quality treatment. Our facility also goes above and beyond a state license to receive accreditation. Our facility offers:
High Quality Care– We ensure the highest quality of addiction treatment. In order to obtain a license and accreditation, our center must meet high standards in order to treat people battling substance abuse and mental health issues.
Highly Trained Staff – Our staff members are experienced, qualified and certified to treat substance abuse. Not only are they highly skilled, they are also caring, loving people who want each client to receive the help they deserve. Most of our staff has had addiction touch their lives in some capacity, so they are empathetic to each client that receives treatment with us.
Access to Medical Staff – We have a certified physician, psychiatrist and nurse who oversee medical detox in our accredited rehab program here in Lancaster, California. If a client needs medication, our physician or psychiatrist will administer and watch over the client. Detoxing should always be closely monitored, because quitting cold turkey can have dangerous consequences. Safely expelling toxins built up from drugs and alcohol is done in our safe, secure, comfortable environment. Staff members will make sure they do everything possible to ensure the client’s comfort.
