Casa Capri is honored to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, the top accrediting body for treatment centers in the nation.

Casa Capri Recovery, a leading addiction treatment program for women in Orange County, Calif., today announced that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Behavioral Health Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.

To achieve accreditation, Casa Capri underwent a rigorous onsite survey during which compliance with behavioral health care standards was evaluated. This included care, treatment, services, leadership and screening procedures. Onsite observations and interviews also were conducted.

Established in 1969, The Joint Commission’s Behavioral Health Care Accreditation Program currently accredits more than 2,250 organizations for a three-year period. Accredited organizations provide treatment and services within a variety of settings across the care continuum for individuals who have mental health, addiction, eating disorder, intellectual/developmental disability, and/or child-welfare related needs.

“Joint Commission accreditation provides behavioral health care organizations with the processes needed to improve in a variety of areas related to the care of individuals and their families,” said Tracy Griffin Collander, LCSW, executive director, Behavioral Health Care Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission. “We commend Casa Capri Recovery for its efforts to elevate the standard of care it provides and to instill confidence in the community it serves.”

“Casa Capri is honored to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, the top accrediting body for treatment centers in the nation,” said Melissa Holmes Goodmon, Founder and Executive Director of Casa Capri. “Our talented staff worked hard to make this happen, and we are proud of the outstanding services we provide to clients every day.”

The Joint Commission’s behavioral health care standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, quality improvement measurement experts, and individuals and their families. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help organizations measure, assess and improve performance.

Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value. The Joint Commission accredits and certifies nearly 21,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States.
