The Excellence in Treatment awards are given each year to rehabs with the best post-treatment success rates. Starting in 2020, awards are given in three categories based upon the type of patients being treated:
An independent panel of judges reviews each application to ensure that the center's research is conducted in accordance with the requirements outlined in the 2020 Excellence in Treatment rules. The treatment centers meeting this standard with the best success rates are then granted gold, silver or bronze awards as follows:
Gold: Top 5% of all applicants
Silver: Top 6% to 15% of applicants
Bronze: Top 16% to 33% of applicants
Applications for the 2020 Excellence in Treatment awards are now closed. Winners are being announced at Southworth Associates' Perspectives conference on October 26th - 29th. Download the preliminary 2021 Excellence in Treatment Rules here.
