Unison Behavioral Health has received a three-year accreditation by CARF international for its behavioral health treatment programs throughout Southeast Georgia.
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 the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body established consumer-focus standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
The accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be award to an organization. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation has put itself through a 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.
The Accreditation Report reads, “Caring, educated, and diverse staff members deliver services to vulnerable clients, even during a pandemic and not missing a beat. Unison Behavioral Health appears likely to maintain and/or improve its current method of operation and demonstrates a commitment to ongoing quality improvement.”
Staff and leadership of Unison were honored to receive the accreditation.
