ORIGINS BEHAVIORAL HEALTHCARE is pleased to announce that Origins Recovery Center and Hannah’s House by Origins in South Padre Island, TX have received new certifications by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM).


ASAM’s certifications are specifically designed to recognize programs that demonstrate the capacity to deliver evidence-based services consistent with established national guidelines for levels of care. Both Origins Recovery Center and Hannah’s House were honored to be chosen for the certification process, which was independently and comprehensively assessed by CARF International.


Certification through ASAM – the addiction medicine professional society representing over 6,000 physicians, clinicians, and associated professionals – marks a significant step forward within the addiction treatment industry, which has long struggled to establish consistent standards nationwide.


“Addiction is such a complex problem, and so deeply ingrained into the fabric of our nation right now, that there is no single organization, policy, or regulation that can tackle it alone,” said Origins’ Chief Clinical Officer, Dr. John Dyben, DHSc, MCAP, CMHP. “That’s why we are proud to work with ASAM and other organizations that strive to apply the best of science, technology, and heart to helping the afflicted find true freedom from addiction.”


Used by clinicians and payers across all care settings, The ASAM Criteria used for this certification will assist in appropriately placing patients in the right level of care based on severity and clinical needs.


Both Origins Recovery Center and Hannah’s House by Origins have been certified for ASAM levels 3.5 and 3.7 which encompasses residential services that are not only capable of treating co-occurring conditions but also are designed to offer a full range of care in a 24-hour setting. These certifications will be active for three years, after which time the program will continue to be rigorously evaluated by CARF International for further extension. This certification marks Origins Behavioral Healthcare’s ongoing commitment to evidence-based behavioral medicine.
