Core Beliefs

Minimal use of Pharmacological Intervention-Based Therapies

SFCC opts to use alternatives to the pharmacological treatment approaches as a first treatment option.   After the completion of a treatment cycle (every 2-3 months), SFCC, in collaboration with treatment providers, conducts re-evaluation sessions with the client and their family to assess the success and level of control of their life without pharmacological intervention.  

Joint Commission Accreditation of Health Organization   provides external validation of our clients safety, clinical quality improvement process, and valuable ideas for improving our mission critical processes. JCAHO improves health care for the public by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value.   We at SFCC chose to be accredited because it gives us the edge in the quality of care we provide.
