Accreditation

Northern Lakes CMH programs and services are accredited by CARF International (formerly the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities).

When a 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 and services gives you the assurance that:

  • The programs and services actively involve consumers in selecting, planning, and using services.
  • The organization's programs and services have met consumer-focused, state-of-the-art national standards of performance.
  • These standards were developed with the involvement and input of consumers.
  • The organization is focused on assisting each consumer in achieving his or her chosen goals and outcomes.
