"Stonegate Center is a trusted and legitimate drug and alcohol treatment center that provides real treatment and operates under strict state regulations."
FORT WORTH, TX, February 06, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Stonegate Center, a leading Christian rehab center in Texas, is now certified by LegitScript after an extensive review of the addiction treatment facility's website and treatment practices. The compliance service requires rehab centers to adhere to strict guidelines and standards for safety, transparency, and legality in order to attain the coveted certification.
Google began cracking down on addiction treatment center ads in September 2017, following a scathing report where costly rehab centers put out misleading ads, preying on the vulnerability of individuals with drug and alcohol addiction and their families. In January 2018, Google banned all types of addiction treatment-related ads globally and started working with experts on verifying rehab facilities by improving the way ads connect people with substance use disorders (SUD) to the right treatment center.
Seeking addiction treatment, while vital, isn't always as simple as typing "best drug rehab" into Google. The search for reliable addiction treatment services that properly advocate for a patient's welfare is stymied by the fact that websites can post deceptive images and content in hopes of luring clients. This, in turn, causes a discrepancy between the quality of care patients need and the quality of care patients experience.
Through their LegitScript certification, Stonegate Center is looking to put an end to this glaring discrepancy and catapult itself to the forefront of addiction medicine with transparent, Christian principles.
Google Collaborates with LegitScript
To eliminate misinformation about rehabs and the services they provide, Google tapped LegitScript, a verification and monitoring service for online pharmacies and treatment centers, to certify addiction treatment centers. By applying 15-standard checkpoints, LegitScript can determine if an addiction treatment provider is legitimate or a scam. LegitScript checks things like the location, licenses, criminal history, proof of insurance, and more.
When seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addiction, it's important to go beyond typing "best drug rehab" on Google. Look for LegitScript seal on the website and visit www.LegitScript.com to check if the treatment facility is verified to ensure you, or your loved one, are in the right hands. It's important you get the care you need and, more importantly, the care that's advertised.
Stonegate Center: Trusted Name in Addiction Treatment
By meeting LegitScript's strict guidelines for certification, Stonegate Center now serves as an industry leader for drug and alcohol addiction treatment. During the several-month long accreditation process, LegitScript reviewed Stonegate Center's website, policies and treatment and determined that it meets the certification company's standards for safety, legality, as well as transparency.
"Achieving the LegitScript verification separates Stonegate Center from lead-generating sites that are posing as treatment centers," said Stonegate Center Executive Director, Will Stoy. "Stonegate Center is a trusted and legitimate drug and alcohol treatment center that provides real treatment and operates under strict state regulations."
The most reliable treatment options are those with specific accreditations, like that given by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization (JCAHO). A stamp of approval from JCAHO means that the treatment facility meets the board's rigorous standards of care and treatment practices. Simply put, a JCAHO-accredited rehab center means a patient is in excellent hands. Stonegate Center has earned JCAHO's Golden Seal of Approval® for Behavioral Health Care in 2017 after demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The seal is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to providing safe and effective care.
"We are beyond thrilled to earn LegitScript's seal of approval," said John Eckelbarger, one of Stonegate Center's Business Development Representatives. "In an effort to be industry leaders, we must hold ourselves to the same high-standards and accountability measures that we preach to our clients on a daily basis."
