CARF International (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) is an independent, non-profit accrediting body of health and human services whose mission is to promote the quality, value and optimal outcomes of services that centers on enhancing the lives of persons served. CARF-accredited service providers have applied CARF’s comprehensive set of standards to all aspects of their service delivery practices. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation decision has undergone 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.
