Alchol Rehab Guide is committed to providing trustworthy, accurate, and authoritative information about the rehab facilities we feature on our site. Therefore, we have partnered with the addiction treatment provider Northbound Treatment Services, which was selected as a trusted provider with Addiction Center after a careful vetting process. Our vetting process included due diligence research such as visiting facilities, touring their programs, meeting staff, and talking with key individuals in the industry.

Northbound has a reputation both inside and outside of the Addiction Treatment industry for being leaders in ethical treatment and quality care.
While we’re committed to fulfilling our mission of providing trustworthy referrals and reliable, up-to-date information about facilities that appear on our site, we also encourage you to do your own research when weighing rehab options. To help you in this endeavor, we’ve put together the following checklist of things to look for in determining whether a prospective rehab center will provide you with high-quality care:
• A full continuum of care means a comprehensive spectrum of services that includes all levels of care, from drug and alcohol detox to residential inpatient rehab and outpatient services, as well as aftercare and continuing care options. A full continuum allows clients to move seamlessly from one level of care to another without having to move between locations and ensures that clients access the level of care that best suits their treatment needs.
• Certification by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and any additional licensing by an appropriate state body – JCAHO certification means that the facility follows the highest national standards for addiction treatment. Any additional licensing by an appropriate state body – for example, the Department of Children and Families (DCF) in Florida, is usually another indication that the provider can be trusted. (You can actually call the DCF and inquire about any history of complaints; if there are many complaints, that should be a red flag.)
• A low client-therapist ratio generally means you’re more likely to get more one-on-one time with a therapist and personalized care. The average client-therapist ratio in the industry is 11:1.
• Transparency about expectations has two dimensions. On the one hand, the facility should be forthright with what you can expect to receive in the way of treatment. They should convey a willingness to answer all of your questions
