CARF Accreditation

 

The Commision on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)
is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services.

You face a variety of option when deciding what rehabilitation services to use and who should provide them. Accreditation is only given to the highest quality service providers who commit to continuous improvement and who focus on the unique needs of each person they serve. Accreditation is a sign of quality and should be an important consideration in your decision making.
