Stepworks to open two more KY treatment facilities this year

By Stepworks Press Release No Comments

Stepworks Recovery Centers is preparing to open a 32-bed, full-service residential treatment facility in Elizabethtown, KY, during the first week of August 2016. This is the first of two KY treatment facilities the company plans to open this year. Stepworks will bring an additional 24-bed treatment center to Bowling Green later in the year. These two facilities will add a total of 56 new treatment beds to the state, where many Kentuckians are in real need of options for substance use recovery.

“The new Stepworks facilities in Elizabethtown and Bowling Green will allow us to expand access to treatment services and help more people in Kentucky recover from the disease of addiction,” says Andrew Ingram, Chief Operating Officer of Stepworks.

Both of the new treatment facilities will offer detoxification as part of a 30-day residential program for women and men. The program focuses on evidence-based addiction education, individual & group therapy, and family therapy services. These services mirror what Stepworks already provides at its premier treatment facility that is currently open in London, KY.

New facilities will build on Stepworks’ reputation for compassionate care

Stepworks has provided treatment for addiction in the state for more than a decade. It was recently granted full three-year accreditation from CARF International, the leading standards body for health services organizations. The accreditation covered the full-range of addiction treatment services that Stepworks provides, in recognition of Stepworks’ commitment to professional, compassionate client care.

We can’t wait to offer our time-tested program of education and treatment for addiction to more people in the state. The company’s hope is to meet the tangible need for greater access to treatment in Kentucky. Keep up with our progress on our Facebook page! We’ll be posting more information about the openings, the facilities, and the great staff who will be helping our clients find renewed hope in recovery.

Stay tuned for photos and video of the new facilities!

Stepworks is now CARF accredited in KY drug treatment

Stepworks Recovery Centers was awarded a Three-Year Accreditation for its comprehensive addiction treatment services by CARF International, the leading standards body for health services organizations. Having worked tirelessly to create a truly excellent client-centered program, the Stepworks team is eager to let the Kentucky treatment community know that it is now CARF accredited.

So what is CARF accreditation, and what did Stepworks do to become CARF accredited? This post will answer those questions and show what Stepworks’ recently granted Three-Year Accreditation status means for its clients and the recovery community at large.

What does it mean to be CARF accredited?

CARF International has been providing accreditation to health programs around the world since 1966. Think of accreditation like an official stamp of approval: it means that the CARF-accredited program has met or exceeded a variety of standards for providing care to clients. Not only that: it also means that program has shown a dedication to improving its quality of service.

Does being CARF accredited mean that a program can rest on its laurels? Not at all! After the period of accreditation is over, Stepworks will go through another CARF survey to keep its accredited status. In addition to that, Stepworks must prove that it is continuing to refine the quality of its services based on recommendations from CARF surveyors. To sum it up, Stepworks’ CARF accreditation means that Stepworks provides excellent client care and is continuing to make it even better.

Three-Year Accreditation? Does that mean there are different kinds?

There are different levels of accreditation that a program can receive. The Three-Year Accreditation that Stepworks received is the highest level of accreditation that CARF awards. This means that Stepworks staff will not have to spend time going through the evaluation process again after only a year. Instead, Stepworks will continue to focus on serving its clients and improving its services until the Three-Year Accreditation period ends and a new evaluation is required.

CARF accreditation is awarded not only to the health organization, but to the specific programs and services it offers. Stepworks was granted the full Three-Year Accreditation for all the programs it currently operates. Specifically, Stepworks Recovery Centers and Stepworks of London were accredited for the following programs:

  • Assessment and Referral
  • Detoxification
  • Intensive Outpatient Treatment
  • Partial Hospitalization
  • Residential Treatment

You can now find Stepworks listed in the CARF International provider directory using the search function at their website, or using the following links:

How did Stepworks become CARF accredited?

Getting CARF accredited means committing to transparency and accountability. In the accreditation process, Stepworks worked closely with CARF to take a critical look at its services and operations. CARF surveyors conducted on-site inspection and evaluation of Stepworks of London, the current residential treatment center in operation. The process also involved submission of internal policy and documentation operations. That means that CARF was given access to see exactly how Stepworks serves its clients, including the built-in policy protections for the rights of clients.

Over the course of its history, Stepworks has not wavered in its commitment to treating clients like family. The well-being of those served will continue to be the core driver of the company’s mission and conduct. Stepworks is honored to have received official recognition from CARF for its commitment to standards and excellent client care. The team hopes this news will help those in need to make their way to Stepworks’ addiction services or another CARF accredited provider.

“CARF standards are internationally recognized benchmarks for excellence in healthcare. We’re proud of our Stepworks team for exceeding these standards and receiving the maximum allowed 3-year accreditation. We look forward to continuing our mission of serving the addicted people of Kentucky.” —Andrew Ingram, Stepworks COO
