Center for Human Services awarded Three-Year CARF Accreditation

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

CARF International announced that Center for Human Services (CHS) has been accredited for a period of three years for its Alcohol and Other Drugs/Addiction Assessment and Referral, Court Treatment, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient Treatment programs. This is the first accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded to CHS. 

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. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.  

Center for Human Services is a not-for-profit organization that has been providing behavioral health services in North King County and South Snohomish County since 1970.

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 International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
