CARF International announced that Capo By The Sea has been accredited for a period of three years for its Residential Treatment Program. Less than 5% of treatment providers are CARF accredited.
This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.
CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality ofÂ their programs and services.
What does it mean to be CARF Accredited?
When the service or program you choose is CARF-accredited, it means your provider has passed an in-depth review of its services. It is your assurance that the provider meets rigorous CARF guidelines for service and quality – a qualified endorsement that your provider conforms to nationally and internationally recognized service standards and is focused on delivering the most favorable results for you.
Choosing CARF accredited programs gives you the assurance that:
- The programs actively involve consumers in selecting, planning, and using services.
- The organization’s programs have met consumer-focused, state-of-the-art international standards of performance.
- These standards were developed with the involvement and input of consumers.
