    Areas of accreditation

    CARF annually accredits thousands of health and human service programs across the continuum of care, serving children to seniors. The services include many types of living and care options, including addiction and substance abuse treatment, rehabilitation after an injury or disease, employment for persons with a disability, home and community services, and retirement living. Given the diverse needs of the various populations, the programs are organized into eight standards manuals and additional online standards, serving the unique needs of persons served. Find the program descriptions for each respective accreditation area below.
