Silvermist Receives CARF Accreditation

Silvermist is proud to announce that it has achieved accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, effective October 31. CARF accreditation indicates a treatment center’s commitment to continually improving services, encouraging feedback and serving the community.

CARF accreditation is an internationally recognized benchmark indicator of quality services in the behavioral health industry.

“This achievement is an indication of your organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served. Services, personnel, and documentation clearly indicate an established pattern of conformance to standards,” wrote CARF President and CEO Brian Boon.
