Recovery Boot Camp Earns The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval
(Delray Beach, FL) Recovery Boot Camp, which was founded in 2015 by Healing Properties’ CEO Timothy Schnellenberger to address America’s Opioid Epidemic, is proud to announce earning The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission accreditation is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.
For Recovery Boot Camp (RBC), that coveted accreditation came as a result of implementing an innovative, long-term drug and alcohol treatment program created specifically to combat the nation’s increasing abuse of opioids. The crisis is especially acute in RBC’s Florida base of Delray Beach, County of Palm Beach, where opioids caused a respective 685 and overdoses in 2016 alone, a combined 590 of them fatal.
The ODs are largely attributed to heroin laced with Fentanyl, which is 100 times stronger than morphine, or Carfentanyl, an elephant tranquilizer 1000 times stronger than Fentanyl. The consequent cocktail is lethal, and only the advent of the antidote Narcan has prevented an even more alarming death toll.
These astounding statistics are not unique to Delray Beach. The numbers are equally unsettling in towns all across America. What makes Delray Beach unique is the availability of the 12-step immersion program employed by Recovery Boot Camp, which is why even more and more Americans are turning to RBC for addiction treatment.
The increasing legions of treatment-seeking men is also why Schnellenberger decided to add RBC to the arsenal he created 15 years ago with the sober living facility Healing Properties.
“Recovery Boot Camp’s comprehensive 12-Step Basic Training program is giving our clients more than a fighting chance,” says Schnellenberger. “It’s giving them the tools to win the fight of their life.”
