The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs Gets Certified by LegitScript
For over 20 years, The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs has been providing high quality treatment for substance use disorders, including alcoholism and drug addiction. The Watershed has firmly believed in offering services and programs that are tailored to each individual’s needs, some of which include dual diagnosis treatment, individual therapy sessions, group counseling, young adult addiction treatment, family outreach, and gender-specific groups.
Recognized by The Joint Commission with a “Gold Seal” of Approval as well as state-licensed by the State of Florida Department of Children and Families to provide substance use disorder treatment, The Watershed has gained positive attention. To add to the list of impressive credentials, it was recently announced this September that The Watershed has been certified by LegitScript.
What Does It Mean to Be Certified by LegitScript?
More and more people are desperate to find reputable addiction treatment either for themselves or a loved one, but over the years, it has become clear that there are also untrustworthy treatment facilities with ulterior motives. It can be tricky to tell the best apart from the rest, which is why Google put a temporary ban on rehab ads in September 2017.
Earlier this year in April of 2018, Google announced that it would be reinstating rehab ads, but only for alcohol and drug rehab centers that get certified by a company called LegitScript. This highly trusted company began vetting alcohol and drug rehab centers in the United States based on a number of criteria, including registrations, compliance, qualifications, professional setting, background and history, facility disclosure, transparency, etc.
In addition to Google requiring addiction treatment centers to be LegitScript certified in order to run ads on the popular search engine, Facebook announced that it would also require a LegitScript certification for any addiction treatment facilities seeking to run rehab ads as well.
LegitScript Certification for Trusted Addiction Treatment Centers
It is an honor for an alcohol and drug rehab center like The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs to be certified by LegitScript because it is another way to recognize the quality of care that is provided. It helps indicate that The Watershed is a qualified, accredited, and reputable addiction treatment facility that you can trust. Unfortunately, there have been unscrupulous treatment centers that have tarnished the reputation of the drug treatment industry – including the trusted, highly regarded facilities. Now that there are more certifications that require an extensive vetting process, such as the certification from LegitScript, it is easier to tell the most trusted centers apart.
Since 1998, The Watershed has provided treatment to over 55,000 alcoholics and addicts. The team of qualified, caring professionals is dedicated to helping patients restore their lives. Along with The Watershed’s various additional credentials, the certification from LegitScript proves the legitimacy and trustworthiness of the healthcare facility.
