To open the doors to a new clinic or practice takes one set of skills however keeping your clinic/practice open and a long-standing fixture in your community takes a whole set of other skills. So let's look at what it takes to build and maintain a successful practice/agency?
We recommend that you gather all the information from your local governing bodies within your state and county. Make sure you have gathered a team of successful qualified staff. Qualified staff should have qualifications within the industry that you plan to open. Example: if you are planning to open a substance abuse and mental health freestanding outpatient center you will want to ensure that you employ licensed mental health professionals and addictions professionals. Building a lucrative practice incorporates building and ethical practice. Quality assurance protocols must be established in order to sustain your infrastructure, service delivery, payment reimbursement and state and federal guidelines.
Treatment centers / rehabilitation centers should be a safe and nurturing environment. Location will be key to your longevity and referral base. Your facility needs to be conducive to healing, find a location a place far from stress and noise. Unsafe crime-ridden environments are not a good idea. Think through all ancillary services before purchase and any location. Make sure that the establish location will meet your current needs and your future growth.
I have seen many entities fail in the first five years because they failed to establish a concrete business plan ,infrastructure and quality assurance program. Another obstacle for many rehabs has been their failure to coordinate and collaborate. Collaboration is key for success!
