Castlewood at the Highlands Treatment Center for Eating Disorders (Castlewood) has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for accreditation after undergoing a rigorous on-site examination. A team of specially trained healthcare professionals evaluated Castlewood on more than 1,200 performance elements for compliance with The Joint Commission’s behavioral healthcare standards for healthcare quality, patient and resident safety.

The survey results noted that Castlewood exceeded elements of obtaining staff and client input in treatment services.

“Achieving this comprehensive accreditation demonstrates Castlewood at the Highlands’ commitment to helping people towards recovery and a bright, healthy future,” said Nicole Siegfried, clinical director at Castlewood. “This accreditation highlights our dedication and passion to provide the highest level of care to those we serve.”

The Joint Commission’s behavioral healthcare standards address functions relating to the care of individuals served and the management of behavioral healthcare organizations. The standards are developed in consultation with behavioral healthcare experts, providers, measurement experts, individuals served and their families.
