Accreditation and Regulatory Compliance

Human Service Center is accredited by The Joint Commission and evaluated against a set of national standards by a surveyor experienced in the delivery of behavioral health care services. Achieving accreditation demonstrates the organization's commitment to provide safe and high quality care.

Since 1971, The Joint Commission has been evaluating organizations that provide mental health, chemical dependency, developmental disabilities, and other psychosocial services. Accreditation helps behavioral healthcare organizations improve their performance, raise the level of care to individuals, demonstrate accountability, and increase participation in managed care and other contracted arrangements. The Joint Commission currently accredits more than 1,900 behavioral health care providers. All surveys are conducted by behavioral health care professionals including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, behavioral health care nurses, and mental health administrators.

Additionally, all substance use treatment programs are licensed by the Illinois Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse.
