Odyssey House of Utah was proudly accredited by The Joint Commission on February 11, 2011. The dedication of the accreditation team payed off! A big thank you to all staff and clients for your long hours and diligence to take our facilities and programs to the next level. Key players in this effort were Emily Capito (Director of Operations), Kali Mower (Development Coordinator), Emily Lewis (Quality Assurance Coordinator), Rob Adams, Bradley Hieb, Caitlin Szalay, Spencer Larsen, Tony Parra, Scott Young (Facility Managers), and Dani Plowthow (Director of Nursing).
Through the 3 day survey process, the surveyors repeatedly complimented the programs, staff, and clients. They specifically noted how impressed they are with our Therapeutic Community and how we have adapted the model to meet each of the populations' unique needs. Further, they spoke very highly of our clinical aptitude, treatment planning, and documentation. In the exit interview with the surveyors, they indicated that we were far ahead of the curve when it comes to our efforts in creating a culture of safety and quality.
