Every facility that offers chemical dependency in Texas needs to be licensed by the state’s Health and Human Services Commission.
The rules offered by the state are minimum standards for a treatment facility. However, faith-based facilities — which offer non-medical treatment — are not licensed but are still tracked by the organization.
When looking for a treatment center. You want to look for a center that is licensed by that state and can provide medical treatment.

Accredited with the Joint Commission
Being licensed by the state is the bare minimum. But accreditation by a third party such as The Joint Commission or CARF is required to accept insurance and is required for higher standards.
Treatment centers that are accredited with the Joint Commission must pass rigorous standards to receive the accreditation.
The Joint Commission is a third party that validates quality and safety for clients in a treatment center environment. The commission also reduces risks for both the treatment center and its clients.
The Joint Commission accreditation is the highest standard of excellence that a treatment center can have in the field. It raises the quality of service at the facility and improves client outcomes.
