The Kiloby Center for Recovery today announced that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Behavioral Health Care Accreditation. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.

The Kiloby Center underwent a rigorous on-site survey in March. During the review, compliance with behavioral health care standards related to several areas, including care, treatment, and services; environment of care; leadership; and screening procedures for the early detection of imminent harm was evaluated. On-site observations and interviews were also conducted.

“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 The Kiloby Center for its efforts to elevate the standard of care it provides and to instill confidence in the community it serves.”

“Our caring and hard-working staff are thrilled to receive this high honor from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” added Kiloby Center Director and Founder, Scott Kiloby. “We are incredibly proud of our one-of-a-kind program and high success rate that helps so many people beat addiction.”

The Kiloby Center for Recovery, Inc. is the first primarily mindfulness based addiction, depression and anxiety treatment center in the U.S. The non-12 step approach is based on founder Scott Kiloby’s book, Natural Rest for Addiction.
