Third-Party Vetted

Our treatment is monitored by all the leading addiction healthcare organizations.

CARF Accredited

While state licensing is mandatory, only for providers with the commitment and capabilities to provide better treatment adhere to much higher standards from non-profit accrediting organizations. The majority of addiction treatment providers are not accredited. CARF is the highest level of accreditation in our industry. The review process takes nine to 12 months. Only 20% of addiction treatment providers meet and maintain these strict criteria.

LegitScript Certified

We were one of the first in the world to earn the specialized certification, which is backed by Visa, Google, Microsoft and Facebook. It assures what we say about our facilities is true and transparent and that we don't accept any form of payment for referrals. Our status can be verified on
