Spectrum’s Georgia-based substance abuse treatment programs recently earned a three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). The survey’s team report included two exemplary citations. This accreditation serves as an external endorsement of performance for providers in the field of rehabilitation. Accredited organizations must meet rigorous CARF guidelines for service and quality. Spectrum has maintained its CARF accreditation in Georgia since 1996.

“The organization has a well-defined set of values, including compassion, service excellence, integrity, optimal care, creativity, positive workplace, and fiscal responsibility, that is reiterated throughout all levels of programming,” wrote the survey team following its in-depth, onsite program review at five state correctional facilities. “Staff retention, longevity, and perseverance are core to the success of Spectrum Health Systems.”

For the past fifteen years, Spectrum has operated prison-based residential substance abuse treatment programs in the State of Georgia under contract to the Department of Corrections and the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles. In 2004, Spectrum was awarded a contract by the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles to provide statewide substance abuse counseling services to 10,200 parolees per year.

Headquartered in Massachusetts, Spectrum Health Systems, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit substance abuse and mental health treatment provider serving more than 20,000 individuals each year in community and institutional settings across eight states.
