In Fall 2020, Syntero invited surveyors from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International to evaluate how well the organization meets international standards for quality and identify areas for improvement. As part of the evaluation, surveyors interviewed clients, their families, staff members and board members. As a result of the survey, Syntero has been issued a distinguished Three-Year CARF Accreditation! Syntero has been accredited by CARF International for more than 10 years.
A survey team from CARF International will be evaluating Syntero on October 28 – October 30. We invited the surveyors to evaluate how well we meet international standards for quality. The survey will tell us what we are doing well and ways we might improve. As a result of this survey, we may continue accreditation. As part of the evaluation, the surveyors will interview people who receive services, their families, our staff and others.
Some questions the survey team members might ask people are as follows:
- Do we provide a clean and safe setting?
- Do you receive the services you need and want?
- Are you treated with respect?
- Do you take part in planning your services?
- Are you told what you need to know about your services?
- Are your questions answered in a way you understand?
- Do you know where to go with questions or concerns?
If you would like to talk with one of the survey team members or want to learn more about CARF International, please let one of our staff members know or contact CARF International directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CARF International surveyed Syntero on 1,732 standards, and awarded the highest level of accreditation to the organization – 3 years, for person-centered, high-quality, strength-based services provided by compassionate and responsive staff!
CARF announced that Dublin Counseling Center has been accredited for a period of three years. This accreditation outcome represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the standards established by CARF. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation outcome 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 is an independent not-for-profit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served.
