Brookhaven Retreat is Accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Organizations (Joint Commission), which has surveyed this organization and found it to meet the requirements for accreditation.
Joint Commission accreditation is nationally recognized as the Gold Seal of Approval in Health Care. The Joint Commission conducts regular on-site reviews every year and a half to three years. The Joint Commission assists Brookhaven Retreat in aspiring to best practices through ongoing support, training, a diversity of materials, inspection and a support representative.
Annually Brookhaven Retreat completes a Periodic Performance Review through Joint Commission to ensure that we are following their standards and guidelines.
"Brookhaven Retreat's accreditation achievement is a demonstration of our leadership and staff commitment to excellence," says Jacqueline Dawes, Founder of Brookhaven Retreat. "Behavioral health accreditation by the Joint Commission requires organization-wide dedication to providing safe, client-focused care, treatment and services."
