Alternatives ABA Earns 2-Year Behavioral Health Center of Excellence Accreditation

Norwell, MA – The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) has awarded Alternatives ABA with a 2-Year Accreditation, recognizing the organization as a top behavioral service provider in the country. The accreditation celebrates exceptional behavioral health providers that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff satisfaction and qualifications, and consumer satisfaction. These areas are measured via a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, a detailed staff qualification review, anonymous staff satisfaction survey and anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.

“Alternatives ABA clearly makes clinical excellence a top priority. This organization maintains high standards for staff qualifications and utilizes best practices in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to provide high-quality care for their clients,” said Sara Gershfeld Litvak, founder of BHCOE. “We are excited to congratulate founder and Executive Director Susan Habchy and her dedicated team on creating and maintaining a sustainable program that is a truly valuable resource to impacted families in Massachusetts and beyond.”
