The National Institutes of Mental Health say that nearly 1 in every 5 adults in the United States lives with a mental illness. This amounts to 44.7 million people in 2016. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reports 21.5 million people over the age of 12 in the country suffered from substance use disorders in 2014. FHE Health is here to help each one of those people get the support they need.
FHE Health is an accredited addiction center, which means we’ve worked to ensure we provide the highest level of care and support to you, our patients and their families. The underlying goal of the care we provide is to help men, women, and teens get back to living their best lives. That takes a concentrated effort to provide outstanding services, cutting-edge treatments, and exceptional staff.
We pride ourselves on being a community leader as well. We’re a strong supporter, for example, of the Hanley Foundation, an organization that works tirelessly to promote prevention services in our community. We’re also a member of The Broward Partnership, a non-profit organization helping the homeless in the region.
Our Affiliations and Accreditations
We are a nationally accredited drug and alcohol treatment facility serving all of Southern Florida. Some of our national and statewide accreditations include the following.
The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities
The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) is an international, nonprofit accreditation program designed to ensure locations provide the highest quality of care through a results-based approach. A CARF accredited program is one in which there is continual improvement of patient care and services offered. These organizations encourage feedback and serve the community on a broad scale.
Accreditation requires a commitment to improvement with a focus on quality, monitoring results and creating customized care plans for patients. An internal exam starts the accreditation process before the CARF team conducts an on-site survey. A clear demonstration that the organization conforms to the rigorous requirements of the agency must be evident. CARF then creates a report that outlines areas of potential improvements and strengths for the organization before accreditation can occur. Accreditation is ongoing, requiring a report submitted to the organization on an annual basis about improvements, changes and patient results. Look up our certification.
The Agency for Health Care Accreditation (AHCA)
The mission of the Florida Agency for Health Care Accreditation (AHCA) is “Better Health Care for All Floridians.” Towards this end, the AHCA serves as a quality-of-care watchdog. Through the sharing of health care data through the Florida Center for Health Information and Policy Analysis, the AHCA is a trusted healthcare information resource for residents of Florida. The AHCA also administers the $25.2 billion Florida Medicaid program, serving more than 4 million Floridians, and the licensure of the state’s 48,500 health care facilities.
Accreditation by the AHCA therefore requires that healthcare providers meet the AHCA’s rigorous quality-of-care standards. For all of these reasons, FHE Health is proud of our accreditation by AHCA. The recognition serves as further affirmation of the excellence of our treatment programs and our status as a trusted treatment provider in the state of Florida.
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
Perhaps one of the leading organizations for the prevention and treatment of drug and alcohol addiction is the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The agency is a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It leads the way in providing information, statistics and cutting-edge treatment and care to those impacted by substance abuse and mental illness.
The SAMHSA National Advisory Council sets the guidelines for care providers. The organization also plays a role in facility licensing, certification and accreditation on a national level. Look up our listing on SAMHSA here. Look up our listing on SAMHSA’s Opioid Treatment Program.
The Joint Commission is a nonprofit organization that works independently from any health care provider and works to improve the quality of patient care in the country. It is tasked with accrediting and certifying the more than 21,000 organizations that are a part of its membership.
To achieve its goals, the Joint Commission works to evaluate organizations and then guides them to excel in their area of care. The process for achieving accreditation is intense and involves ongoing reports and on-site evaluations.
The Department of Children and Families
FHE Health is also affiliated with the Florida Department of Children and Families. This organization provides care and guidance to women, children and families in need. We work closely with the organization to meet their goals and needs by helping those who suffer from substance use disorders or mental health challenges. As a public agency, the goal of this organization is to provide emergent services as well as ongoing care and support to those in crisis.
This program is financially supported through Chapters 394 and 397 of the Florida Statutes and provides for all mental health care for those who meet financial and need-based guidelines. As an organization affiliated with The Department of Children and Families, you can expect FHE Health to provide ongoing support at the highest level of care.
National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers
The mission of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP) is to advance addiction services and support service providers. The organization, founded in 1978, is a nonprofit that accredits only the highest quality addiction treatment centers in the country. It also works to create and promote the best practices for helping those in need. One of the key areas of success for NAATP is its ability to bring ideas, innovative thoughts and new practices to the forefront by connecting service providers across the globe.
Organizations who wish to be a part of NAATP must meet specific requirements and provide innovative and time-tested services. The organization must also have a value-based practice, which includes providing high-quality integrated services to patients. During the application process, NAATP focuses on quality assurance and its strict code of ethics.

Legit Script Certified
Legit Script is an independent certification agent that certifies a business is in compliance with a high set of standards and is permitted, by those standards to advertise to potential clients. Google uses its certification as the most important standard in allowing GoogleAds advertisements in a google search. The need for this verification was identified in 2017 when Google shut off all advertising in addiction treatment after complaints of unscrupulous vendors manipulating the platform.

FHE Health is proud to have been awarded and maintain it’s legit script certification as a trusted advertiser. See our listing on LegitScript here.
