|Why Join AATA|
Why do you need to join the American Addiction Treatment Association (AATA)?
You’ve chosen a challenging, rewarding business…let AATA handle the regulatory complexity so you can get back to work!
We know that running an addiction treatment facility can be incredibly complex, time-intensive, and, quite often, unpredictable. Compliance requirements add a layer of complexity onto an already complicated endeavor, particularly while the industry is in an unprecedented state of flux. You might wonder how you can keep up with of all the changes, never mind understand how they affect you.
Our job is to give our members what they really need in this industry. We do what our members don’t have the time or the resources to do alone: the heavy lifting of staying on top of rules, regulations, and responsibilities in the ever-changing landscape of addiction treatment and sober living. We give you the tools you need to stay compliant…
Because you can’t stay open if you don’t stay compliant.
Staying compliant isn’t something you do once and are done with. In this industry, it’s something that must be repeatedly demonstrated as long as you keep your doors open.
Due in part to the recent backlash against industry growth, new obstacles are constantly emerging, from payer audits and investigations to new NIMBY (“Not in my backyard!”) ordinances. Sober living houses, residential treatment facilities, and outpatient programs are under more scrutiny than ever. And regardless of how well-run and compliant a program currently is, there’s a high likelihood of encounters with federal, state and municipal government authorities, especially since rules and regulations are subject to change. Which means staying compliant is more challenging and of-the-moment than ever.
Your work To-Do list is likely a mile long, but the action item that’s the most important for your program’s immediate and long-term success is becoming a member of the AATA.
