CARF (The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) recently announced that Phoenix Houses of New England, Inc. has been accredited for a period of three years for its thirty-five programs, including a Medical Detoxification unit and thirty-four behavioral healthcare programs, throughout the New England region. This endorsement is the sixth consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body has awarded to Phoenix Houses of New England.
This official accreditation represents the highest level of certification that may be awarded to an organization and demonstrates Phoenix Houses of New England’s substantial conformance to CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous 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. CARF reviewers commended Phoenix Houses of New England for a number of strengths, including its strong, visionary leadership and its skilled, compassionate and person-centered staff who deliver a full, fluid continuum of care in accordance with recognized best practices in the field. Also cited as examples of excellence were its sound, financial practices and its well-maintained, welcoming facilities.
Congratulating all Phoenix Houses of New England employees on attaining a three-year CARF accreditation for all of New England’s facilities, Regional Director Patrick B. McEneaney said, “This accreditation recognizes and commends all that you do each day to bring quality care to all of the clients we serve. It’s a tribute to your hard work and dedication.”
