Passages to Recovery Outdoor Addiction Treatment Program Achieves Joint Commission Accreditation
Date:5/13/2010

Accreditation result of thorough safety and quality of care review

Loa, UT (PRWEB) May 13, 2010 -- Passages to Recovery, a clinically integrated outdoor addiction treatment program for young adult men, has announced the achievement of accreditation from The Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.

“We are delighted to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission,” said Gil Hallows, Executive Director of Passages to Recovery. “The Joint Commission has long been a symbol of quality care, and recognition from them is further validation for the excellent care our program is committed to providing to young men struggling to overcome their addictions.”

Located in Loa, Utah, Passages to Recovery is a recognized leader in outdoor substance abuse treatment, grounded in the vision of merging the 12 Step process with outdoor, rite-of-passage experiences. By focusing on evidence-based techniques and philosophies while also embracing innovative methodologies, Passages to Recovery has become a dynamic, highly effective option for young men who are struggling to overcome their addictions and regain control over their lives.

“Substance abuse and chemical dependency treatment delivered via wilderness therapy provides a unique physical and emotional experience for clients that is very different from traditional therapy delivered in an office setting,” said Hallows. “However, seeking and achieving Joint Commission accreditation illustrates that safe, quality care is our number one priority, even outside the traditional therapeutic setting.”

Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization that seeks to inform and protect clients and consumers, educate providers and support improvement in the quality of behavioral health care organizations overall. Today, The Joint Commission accredits more than 1,800 behavioral health care organizations. The Joint Commission develops all of its standards in consultation with behavioral health care experts, providers, measurement experts, clients and their families. To earn and maintain accreditation, a behavioral health care organization must undergo an on-site survey by a Joint Commission survey team at least every three years.

Passages to Recovery employs an innovative, dual-diagnostic approach to addiction treatment, addressing alcohol and substance abuse, chemical dependency, and co-occurring mental health issues via traditional interventions, a 12 Step program, classic wilderness therapy, psychological testing administered by a clinical psychologist, and research-based methodology. The Passages to Recovery experience includes backpacking, camping, mastering primitive skills, participating in sweat lodges and completing a Vision Quest. During the expedition, the constant noise and distractions of urban life are left behind, providing the silence and serenity conducive to a physical, emotional and spiritual awakening.

Passages to Recovery is a program of Aspen Education Group, the nation’s leading provider of therapeutic education programs for struggling or underachieving young people. Aspen’s services range from short-term intervention programs to residential treatment, and include a variety of therapeutic settings such as boarding schools, outdoor behavioral health programs and special needs summer camps, allowing professionals and families the opportunity to choose the best setting to meet a student’s unique academic and emotional needs. Aspen is a member of CRC Health Group, the nation’s largest chemical dependency and related behavioral health organization. For over three decades, CRC Health has been achieving successful outcomes for individuals and families.
