This practical guidebook is designed to support staff and administrators of substance abuse treatment programmes in their efforts to comply with the 1995 complete revision of accreditation standards by the Joint Commission on Accreditation on Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), in the United States. The new standards encompass a broad scope of areas from patient care to organizational elements. The authors thoroughly explain the accreditation standards, offer clear suggestions for programmes and centres to meet those standards, and illustrate specifically what happens in the accreditation process.
