Futures is committed to providing the highest-available quality of medical care to its patients. We employ experienced, licensed clinicians, and adhere to the high-standards of care mandated by America’s leading accreditation organization. However, our commitment to quality is not limited to following the standards of others. Through regular collaboration, continuing education, and real-world clinical practice, the Futures’ clinical team is constantly improving individual and system-wide performance.
Futures Recovery Healthcare is accredited by The Joint Commission, the nation’s most significant medical accrediting body. To obtain accreditation, healthcare organization staff members must be able to demonstrate proficiency in specific job competencies and receive performance evaluations based on specific job descriptions. Furthermore, the organization must be in compliance with the standards for at least four months prior to the initial survey.
An independent, non-profit organization, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies nearly 21,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.
Futures is licensed by and meets the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) standards for residential care. Facilities must meet license requirements through the submission of a completed application, required documentation, and completion of a satisfactory survey.
In the State of Florida, the Agency for Health Care Administration is responsible for licensing and regulating Florida’s health care facilities and for providing information to Floridians about the quality of care they receive.
Futures’ patients are treated by licensed care providers and accredited therapists. Our medical director, Gloria Dunkin, received her MD from the University of Iowa and completed her general psychiatry residency and her fellowship in addiction psychiatry at the University of Miami.
