The country's leading independent commission in accreditation and certification of health care organizations - The Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) - has awarded G & G Holistic Addiction Treatment Center with their highest distinction: The Gold Seal of Approval. John Giordano and Jerry Goldfarb's center earned the distinction by meeting or exceeding all Joint Commission rules, regulations, policies and procedures and the stringent requirements of the National Patient Safety standards.
"G & G Holistic Addiction Treatment Center accreditation achievement is a demonstration of the organization's leadership and staff commitment to excellence," says Mary Cesare-Murphy, Ph.D., executive director, Behavioral Health Care Accreditation Program, the Joint Commission. "Joint Commission Accreditation requires organization-wide dedication to providing safe, client focused care, treatment and services."
G & G Holistic Drug Rehab Co-Founders, John Giordano and Jerry Goldfarb, were elated to receive such a high honor and proud of their staff's dedication to excellence that was instrumental in garnering the Gold Seal of Approval. The Seal was given at the completion of the Joint Commission's most recent three-day, on-site inspection survey. Giordano and Goldfarb, both twenty plus-year veterans of addiction counseling and treatment, recognize the tremendous importance of Joint Commission accreditation and are committed to continue delivering the most progressive and comprehensive holistic addiction treatment available to their clients.
During the on-site review process, all facets of G & G Holistic Addiction Treatment Center's program were closely examined. The credentials of all medical and clinical staff were thoroughly scrutinized to assure that the highest levels of professional services are being provided to the clients. According to G & G Holistic Drug Rehab compliance officer, Rick Murphy, while there are many accredited behavioral health care facilities that are accredited by the Joint Commission; G & G Holistic Addiction Treatment Center is, to his knowledge, is the only holistic addiction treatment facility in America to be awarded a Gold Seal by the Joint Commission.
JCAHO evaluates and accredits more than 16,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. It is an independent, not-for-profit organization and the nation's predominant standards-setting and accrediting body in health care since 1951. The Joint Commission has maintained state-of-the-art standards that focus on improving the quality and safety of care provided by health care organizations.
