What does Accreditation mean at Addiction Rehab Toronto?
At Addiction Rehab Toronto and as part of being a facility selected as ready to go through the Accreditation process we maintain formalized quality improvement frameworks. These frameworks allow us to shift how we approach each client based on their individual needs and offers the flexibility required to hear, understand and address each unique story. In addition to these formalized processes our counselors are constantly adjusting and coming up with new ways to better provide our services to our clientele. This practice is inherent in every action taken by our counselors so that the client’s individual treatment needs as well as that of the community as whole are met whether it is during individual counseling sessions or our tailored group content.
All decisions made by our administrative and clinical teams are governed by a personalized ethical decision-making framework we refer to as the S.T.E.P.S.. This means that each decision is vetted by a process based on the values of honesty, integrity and client safety. Through utilizing this framework our counselors as individuals and as a team account for each individual client’s path, the family involved, the circumstances in the present and the external influences on all three. Through processing and understanding those factors we make the best possible ethically sound decision for the betterment of the client, our community and A.R.T. as a whole.
Safety to us means that every facet of our program and the staff that work within it are dedicated to ensure our clients are cared for as if they were our family. The entire facility is inspected for any safety issues monthly by our qualified health and safety staff team so we are prepared in the event of an emergency. It means each member of our staff team is properly vetted with full background and vulnerable sectors checks to ensure their eligibility for employment within our community. Lastly, that we have developed and continue to maintain an environment of safety so our clients can feel the level of comfort and care conducive to opening up and working through their treatment.
