CARF Accreditation
 
The Division of Behavioral Health Services is in the process of applying for accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).  The Division has prepared for the CARF on-site survey for the last two years.  All staff members have contributed to this process, which aims at improving Behavioral Health Services provided to the community.  The Division has analyzed and improved both clinical services and administrative business practices.  A survey team from CARF International will be visiting on June 21 to June 23 of 2017. We invite members of this community to provide feedback on our service delivery by contacting Melissa Crawford-Halterman at 240-313-3310.
 
What is accreditation?
Accreditation is a process that demonstrates a provider has met standards for the quality of its services.  CARF International establishes these standards to guide providers in offering their services and also uses the standards to evaluate how well a provider is serving people and how it can improve.
