What is accreditation and why is it important?
What is the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)?
CARF International is an independent, accrediting body of health and human services. CARF-accredited service providers have applied CARF’s comprehensive set of standards for quality to their business and service delivery practices. This means that they have demonstrated conformance to proven standards for business practices and are committed to continuous quality improvement. Each provider’s commitment to excellence is periodically evaluated on site and reconfirmed annually.
Consumers like you have choices in directing your services. Carefully researching and selecting your options are essential steps to finding the services you need and achieving the results you desire.
Accreditation demonstrates a provider’s commitment to continuously improve service quality and to focus on the satisfaction of the persons served.
