Excellence in Treatment Awards

The Excellence in Treatment awards are given each year to rehabs with the best post-treatment success rates.  Starting in 2020, awards have been 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 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
