Narconon Suncoast Receives “The Gold Seal of Approval”

Narconon Suncoast - The Joint Commition Gold Seal Certificate

Narconon Suncoast Rehabilitation Center today announced it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Behavioral Health Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.

The facility had an intensive on-site survey and inspection on February 12th through the 14th and during the review, compliance with behavioral health care standards related to several areas, including care, treatment and services; the environment of care; leadership; and screening procedures for the early detection of imminent harm was evaluated. On-site observations and interviews were also conducted, and the facility passed with flying colors. Being recognized by the Joint Commission is a feat in and of itself—only the “best of the best” get the commission's Gold Seal of Approval.

Narconon Suncoast has been open in Clearwater, Florida since 2015 and has spent the last two and a half years saving lives by helping those once thought lost to addiction to regain control over their lives and return them back to positive, constructive, and contributing members of society. Narconon is a non-12-step program that doesn’t believe addiction is a disease, but rather a pattern of behaviors that result in a person becoming biophysically addicted to drugs. Through the Narconon program, our students’ bodies are cleansed of all drugs via the New Life Detoxification program and then the real, root causes of their addictions are uncovered and finally dealt with through rigorous counseling and Life Skills courses.

Narconon Suncoast has one of the most effective and comprehensive programs out there. In a world of 12-step programs, psychiatric programs, wilderness programs, holistic retreats, etc., it’s important that a family makes the best decision for their loved one struggling with addiction. Not every modality works for everyone and the individual needs of the addict should be taken into consideration. I do know, from personal experience, that Narconon gives any addict the best chance of achieving long-term sobriety. Take it from an ex-heroin junkie…this program works.
