Qualified Service Providers: OHR Receives accreditation from CARF International
OHR receives accreditation from CARF International, a premier non-profit organization and rehab accreditor that focuses on advancing quality of life.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dana Point, CA, July 23, 2015 – Ocean Hills Recovery has officially been accredited by CARF International, receiving some of the highest honors available, including the very rare no recommendations. No recommendations mean CARF found no areas in the OHR program that needed improvement, as they were in full compliance; this is a notation that less than 3% of all facilities receive. In addition, Ocean Hills was granted the maximum certification period of 3 years, which is also quite uncommon.
The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) is an independent, nonprofit organization with a focus on advancing the quality of services in health and human services. CARF is an accrediting body meaning that a CARF-accredited service provider has applied the CARF set of standards for quality to their business and service delivery practices. CARF has been an approved accreditation provider for opioid treatment programs providing outpatient, residential, and detox services since 2001 and has been an accrediting body as a whole since 1966.
CARF accreditation consists of ongoing consultation and in-depth on-site reviews to help a CARF-accredited service provider achieve the highest quality of care for their customers. Accreditation demonstrates that the organization has opened its service delivery and business processes to outside scrutiny to improve the quality of their programs. Accreditation also demonstrates that a CARF-accredited service provider has made a specific commitment to put the needs of their residents at the center of everything they do and that they respect the rights and individuality of its clients.
OHR offers 30, 60, and 90 day residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. They provide a variety of different drug and alcohol rehab programs to ensure a successful, healthy future. Their programs include individual, group and family therapy, along with yoga, gym, home-cooked meals and a staff which includes a psychiatrist and licensed psychologists. Ocean Hills Recovery offers affordable but successful drug and alcohol detox and treatment. Treatment is often covered by many common insurance but they also have private financing available. Along with their inpatient facilities, OHR offers transitional living residences in the beautiful city of Dana Point, California.
