Our Facility Screening Process

Our goal is to make it easy for people to connect with quality care that fits their needs.

We know there is no one-size-fits-all solution to the challenges of substance misuse and dependency. We also know that it can be difficult to identify qualified treatment providers.

So we asked experts to identify well-established treatment options. Then we screened facilities that offer these treatments, based on their state registration and federal data on their accreditations and populations served.

Screening Criteria

Registration with the state. Each facility must be registered with either the state substance misuse agency or the state mental health department.

Independent accreditation. Each facility must be accredited by at least one of the following independent programs or organizations:

  • Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities
  • Council on Accreditation
  • Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program
  • National Committee for Quality Assurance
  • The Joint Commission
  • U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Certification of Opioid Treatment Programs

Scoring. We score each facility using SAMHSA data on accreditations and populations served. Those facilities with the highest scores in each locality are included on this site.
