Our Accreditations & Associations

Ohio Recovery Center is accredited and licensed by The Joint Commission (TJC) and Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS), demonstrating our commitment to high-quality, personalized care.

Ohio Recovery Center (ORC) is accredited for addiction treatment and licensed for primary mental health care. These credentials demonstrate our commitment to high-quality, personalized treatment.

The Joint Commission (TJC)

Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission (TJC) is a non-profit organization that accredits more than 22,000 health care programs across the U.S. As the nation’s oldest and largest health care accreditor, it aims to provide all citizens with safe, effective care. 

Surveys & Standards Of Care

To receive accreditation from TJC, a health care program must undergo an on-site survey by a TJC survey team. 

Each survey team consists of doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, and other health care professionals. The surveyors evaluate each program by observing care, interacting with patients and staff, and analyzing the medical records of randomly selected patients. 

During the survey, the program must demonstrate that it meets TJC’s standards of care. These frequently updated standards involve numerous aspects of treatment, including:

  • patient rights and education
  • medication management
  • medical error prevention
  • staff training and qualification 
  • emergency preparation 

If accredited, the program must undergo an additional survey at least once every three years. These unannounced surveys help ensure that the program is committed to providing high-quality, evidence-based care. 

Ohio Mental Health & Addiction Services (OMHAS)

Ohio Mental Health & Addiction Services (OMHAS) is a state government department that oversees prevention, treatment, and recovery services for Ohioans affected by addiction and other mental health concerns. 

It licenses residential facilities, private psychiatric hospitals, and community behavioral agencies throughout the state. 

Licenses & Surveys

Before issuing a license, OHMAS performs an on-site survey to ensure the facility provides safe, effective care. 

In addition, to become licensed, all inpatient psychiatric programs must be accredited by either The Joint Commission (TJC) or another health care accreditor called Det Norske Veritas (DNV). 

To maintain licensure, facilities must submit a license renewal application and a written report of any significant changes in policies or procedures each year. They must also undergo an additional on-site survey every three years. 

By meeting the criteria of the above accrediting organizations, our rehab facility provides a high standard of care that gives patients and their loved ones the best chance at lasting recovery.
