Ensure that your substance abuse programs meet accreditation requirements by using the Substance Abuse Program Accreditation Guide, a practical guidebook that addresses the new 1995 accreditation standards of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). Now there+âÔÇás an easy-to-use volume designed to support program staff and administrators of treatment programs in their efforts to comply with the complete revision of the JCAHO standards. The new accreditation standards are wide-ranging and encompass a broad scope of material from patient care to organizational elements. Although the vast areas covered can be daunting to those in need of practical translation of specific regulations, this pragmatic volume serves as a definitive guide for understanding and abiding by all aspects of the new standards. The contributors thoroughly explain the accreditation standards, offer clear suggestions for programs and centers to meet those standards, and illustrate specifically what happens in the accreditation process. This guide brings knowledge into action, providing program staff and administrators with practical steps to ensure that their programs meet accreditation requirements and stay in compliance. This wide-reaching volume crosses over a wide array of disciplines including substance abuse, program evaluation, social work, clinical/counseling psychology, and drugs and behavior.
