Gateway Foundation Alcohol & Drug Treatment centers were recently surveyed by The Joint Commission, which renewed its accreditation for the next 3 years. Considered the gold standard in health care accreditations, The Joint Commission evaluation included 11 Gateway locations and 30 alcohol and drug treatment programs to verify the organization provides the highest standards in care for substance abuse and mental health issues.

To help ensure communities have access to safe, quality treatment and services, The Joint Commission is an independent, non-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies more than 20,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. It analyzes hospitals and health care providers for compliance with more than 1,000 “individual elements of performance” applicable to a variety of functions, such as: safety and well-being of patients and staff, quality assurance, governance, environments of care and medication management.

“I consider this last evaluation our most successful since The Joint Commission awarded Gateway its first accreditation in 1992—and our extremely dedicated staff is a main reason why we are performing so well,” says Michael Darcy, President & CEO, Gateway Foundation Alcohol & Drug Treatment. “As an organization, we continuously improve the quality of our clinical programs and adopt the most effective evidenced-based clinical treatment protocols to help people overcome addiction. And, I believe The Joint Commission accreditation is a vital process that has helped Gateway become a leading substance abuse treatment provider in Illinois,” adds Darcy.
