We are a collective group of independent treatment providers from around the world who came together to bring mental health and addiction to the forefront of the healthcare industry. We have collectively taken the responsibility to create ethical standards of quality care to improve the treatment industry.
For far too long, mental health and addiction have taken a back seat. Today with the increasing death rates rising due to overdose or suicide we have come together to bring these issues to the center stage. We are a group of multidisciplinary individual providers or treatment facilities who are vowing to work together as a single coalition to create change within our industry.
We will create this change in a few ways. We will work together to push forward initiatives and policies that raise the standards of care for behavioral health to equal that of medical healthcare. We will also continue to raise the bar for standard of care by highlighting quality and ethical providers through support and unification we will hope to bring light on those doing the best care practices supported by modern research.
If you think about when someone gets cancer, everyone in their circle of family and friends stops what they are doing posts about prayers, wears ribbons, bakes a casserole, etc. it is beautiful. But this is not how we treat a person inflicted with mental health or addiction. There are no casseroles delivered to the mom who’s son just overdosed.
