Healing House Earns CARF Accreditation

Healing House Earns CARF Accreditation

Elevating our commitment to quality care: Healing House earns CARF accreditation.

The Healing House Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient programs are proud to announce that we have recently achieved accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). CARF is an independent, non-profit organization that accredits a variety of service providers, including hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers, and community-based organizations. The accreditation process involved a thorough review of our policies, procedures, and practices to ensure that we meet CARF’s rigorous standards for quality and effectiveness.

 At Healing House, we prioritize the recovery journey of each participant through our person-centered treatment plans. By aligning our services with each participant’s unique needs, we ensure that they receive the best possible care and support. Our commitment to excellence is demonstrated by the CARF accreditation we have received, which recognizes our dedication to delivering quality care. During our recent survey, participants expressed their satisfaction with the level of care received, highlighting the attentive and caring nature of our staff. As one participant noted, “The structure teaches me how to understand myself and who I am with healthy self-esteem.” We take pride in our personalized approach to care, which fosters a supportive environment that promotes healing and recovery.

Being CARF accredited enhances our reputation and increases our credibility with participants, funders, and other stakeholders. Some of our stakeholders commented that,

“Healing House sets the standard for quality care by serving the whole person through an array of services, including life skills, counseling, care coordination, group therapy, individual therapy, spiritual counseling, and access to public transportation”.

As a recognized symbol of excellence in the healthcare and human services industry, CARF accreditation places us in a select group of organizations that have achieved this distinction. With this accreditation, we anticipate being able to secure new funding opportunities, allowing us to continue stabilizing and growing our services.

This accreditation is a testament to the hard work of our staff and leadership team. Our founder and CEO, Bobbi Jo Reed, leads by example and embodies the Healing House values in her everyday life, inspiring our team to follow suit. During the accreditation process, CARF accreditors applauded our staff’s high energy, enthusiasm, knowledge, and commitment to our mission.

Our CARF accreditation is a reflection of our commitment to providing top-notch care to our participants. We are proud to be recognized by an organization that is dedicated to promoting the highest standards of recovery services. We would also like to express our gratitude to the Missouri Department of Mental Health, Division of Behavioral Health  for providing us with the grant that allowed us to pursue this accreditation. Achieving this milestone is a significant accomplishment, and we are excited about the positive impact it will have on our participants, staff, and community by improving our outcomes and best practices of care and how we assess our programs. Moving forward, we will continue to work hard to provide exceptional services and build a brighter future together.
