OTP Accreditation: A Progress Report - An Interview with Megan Marx of The Joint Commission CSAT Rescinds "Dear Colleague" Letter on Methadone Take-Homes
An Interview with Megan Marx of The Joint Commission
Addiction Treatment Forum discussed the progress OTPs have made during that time with Megan Marx, MPA, Assistant Director of Special Contracts at The Joint Commission.
AT Forum: In your view, what has accreditation accomplished for OTPs and their patients?
MARX: Part of the purpose of accreditation was to improve standards, and that has happened. More programs are focusing on patient safety and on consistent, higher quality care.
ATF: How are OTPs progressing in the area of continuous quality improvement (CQI)?
MARX: CQI is one of the best ways to describe what accreditation is all about.
MARX: Patient satisfaction is key.
MARX: Things are improving all the time.
MARX: First would be individualization of treatment.
MARX: Anything that is a risk to patient safety.
MARX: Some time ago we wrote into our standards a recommendation about doing a risk assessment related to cardiac concerns.
MARX: When we survey, we make sure that that all patients are assessed for appropriateness for take-homesâ€"initially and at change pointsâ€"but not for every take-home dose.
MARX: Just a handful each year. We’ve seen more activity in the South and West than in the East.
MARX: It depends on each company’s commitment to the field and to its patients.
MARX: Perhaps to some extent, but we’re talking about stigma against medication-assisted treatment itself, and against the people who need treatment, regardless of whether the program is accredited.
MARX: I am familiar with a model that combined a local physician’s practice with a local treatment program and a separately owned pharmacy.
MARX: That’s a really good question.
MARX: Initial CSAT grant funding was designed to help OTPs transition to the new accreditation process, and is gradually being phased out.

"The language contained in the revised guidelines is written clearly, prohibiting program-wide dosage caps or ceilings," said Megan Marx, MPA, associate director for Behavioral Health at The Joint Commission. "This language will be reviewed and assimilated into The Joint Commission's accreditation standards for opioid treatment programs."
The Joint Commission surveys OTPs "with regard to appropriate, individualized dosing in OTPs, taking into account the potential effects of atypical metabolic patterns, the synergistic effect of other prescribed medications, and other possible concurrent health conditions," added Ms. Marx.
Ms. Marx, also on the committee, recommended that Ms. Harrison speak for the accreditation community.
