The Center for Chemical Addictions Treatment has been accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) since 1975. CCAT completed its most recent survey in the fall of 2008 and once again met the high standards for its quality and safety of care, treatment and services. JCAHO does a voluntary, extensive on site survey of hospitals and health care facilities at least every three years. In addition to its formal survey, JCAHO also requests that any concerns about the safety or quality of care provided by CCAT are reported in writing to: The Office of Quality Monitoring, The Joint Commission, One Renaissance Boulevard, Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181.
