The Joint Commission is a leading health care quality improvement and accrediting body. The Behavioral Health Care Accreditation Program – informed by scientific literature and expert consensus – develops care standards in consultation with health care experts and providers, individuals and their families, and quality improvement measurement experts. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) helped establish the Opioid Treatment accreditation program, emphasizing person-focused care, integrated and individualized approaches to opioid treatment programs, patient satisfaction, and outcomes.
Mountainside’s ongoing compliance with Joint Commission standards allows the center to elevate key pillars of its programming, such as:
The Detox program, which provides 24-hour medical care in a state-of-the-art facility, including psychiatric and nursing services as well as personalized wellness and medication plans.
Mountainside’s Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program, which can be lifesaving for certain individuals on the path to recovery. Mountainside offers Suboxone and Vivitrol as key tools in supporting a comprehensive addiction treatment plan. These medications have been proven to reduce cravings and minimize physical withdrawal symptoms in individuals who suffer from alcoholism or opioid addiction.
