Marks of Quality Care

The White Deer Run Treatment network is dedicated to upholding the highest standards in the field of addiction treatment. We are proud to be affiliated with other state and national organizations that also promote best practices and quality care to ensure that individuals in need receive the superior services that they deserve.

American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM)

ASAM is a national professional organization that includes thousands of clinicians, physicians, and other professionals who are involved in addiction treatment. For more than 50 years, ASAM has been a leading voice in the effort to improve the quality of care that is available to individuals whose lives have been disrupted by substance abuse and addiction, expand access to treatment services, educate the public, and encourage continued professional development.

Having ASAM members on the White Deer Run Team is part of our ongoing effort to ensure that each individual and family who heals with us benefits from the most effective research-supported treatment techniques and the highest levels of professional support.

Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)

Since its inception in 1966, CARF has served as an independent accreditor of programs that care for elderly adults, children and youth, individuals who are struggling with behavioral health disorders, and similar populations.

Earning and retaining CARF accreditation indicates that the programs within the White Deer Run Treatment Network have consistently demonstrated superior management practices, quality service delivery, and adherence to the highest values and standards in the treatment field.

National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP)

NAATP is a national organization of addiction treatment providers, with members that provide a wide range of essential treatment services for individuals and families who have been impacted by substance abuse and chemical dependency. NAATP’s efforts include promoting collaboration, establishing and sharing best practices, advocating for expanded access to superior care, and otherwise elevating the quality of services that member organizations provide.

White Deer Run is proud to be a NAATP member and to support this organization’s mission and vision.

Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP)

Programs in Pennsylvania that provide treatment services for substance abuse and addiction fall under the purview of DDAP. Formerly a part of the Pennsylvania Department of Health, DDAP was elevated to department status in 2012 in order to better provide leadership and coordinate addiction treatment efforts throughout the state.

The centers that comprise the White Deer Run Treatment Network have met all relevant licensure and/or certification standards as established by DDAP, and we continue to work closely with this agency to promote continued improvements both in the standards of our profession and in the quality of care that is available to men and women throughout the state.
