Letter from the Director

Samaritan Institute LogoSamaritan Counseling Center Experiences an Accreditation Review

On June 13th and 16th, Samaritan Counseling Center of Southeastern Michigan experienced an extensive accreditation process by the Samaritan Institute of Denver, Colorado. Our Center is part of the Samaritan Institute network, which includes 77 Centers in 26 States and one center in Japan; Samaritan Institute has over 500 locations. At the end of 2013 over 650,768 counseling sessions were provided by these Samaritan Centers. Each Center is reviewed and accredited every four years.

Passing an accreditation involves gathering over 150 documents detailing policies and procedures and gaining an overview of the Center’s operation including structure and organization, clinical performance, finances and client services. It is, besides being a lot of work for staff, an opportunity to take a good look at the health of the total organization.

Our Center received a positive and affirming evaluation. Now that the accreditation visit has been completed, the site visitor will draft a report that includes addressing several issues. Like people, no Center is perfect; there is always room for growth. Improving our marketing strategies, tightening up our referral network, and strengthening our financial base are areas the Center will address in coming months.

It’s important for our clients, friends and supporters to know that Samaritan Counseling Center of Southeastern Michigan is a quality counseling center that works hard to fulfill our mission to “provide professional therapeutic counseling and educational services to all God’s people.” Being an accredited Center provides a high level of service and quality.
