The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) is an independent, non-profit organization that reviews and grants accreditation services nationally and internationally on request of a facility or program. Their standards are rigorous, so those services that meet them are among the best available.

This is CARF’s highest award. It means that we satisfy each of the CARF Accreditation Conditions, demonstrate substantial conformance to the standards and use continuous quality improvement practices.
