(as adapted by Connecticut Certification Board)
All housing sites affiliated with ORH have been inspected and found to provide a standard of living that meets ORH & NARR requirements. The housing inspection includes health, life skills programming, safety and management reviews that ensure each site lives up to the standards set forth by ORH.
ORH Associate Peer Review: This set of standards supersedes any and all previous standards required to be an ORH associate.
The quality review process begins when the application is received by ORH. No claims of operating in good standing with the quality standards can be made until the site visit is completed and approved by the ORH Advisory Board.
Upon approval, associates are encouraged to display documentation that they are in good standing with the ORH quality standards, “Associate of ORH,” or some similar statement in all literature for the property. A link to the ORH website may be inserted in the facility website homepage.
(Note that ORH provides peer quality reviews for Levels I, II, and III. Level IVs are licensed by the State of Ohio as residential treatment providers.)
