What is CARF?

Maynord’s Recovery Center is proud to be a CARF accredited program. CARF International is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services organizations. CARF accreditation requires a service provider to continually improve quality of service and to focus on the individual needs of the persons they serve our stake holders. Maynord’s Recovery Center has been CARF accredited since 1991. CARF’s 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.



Over the past 22 years we have undergone the process of obtaining and renewing our CARF accreditation. This means our processes are subject to an external evaluation by CARF, which showcases our efforts to exceed CARF’s stringent standards. We are pleased to say that each time we have been awarded a three year accreditation. What this means is that our organization satisfied each of the Accreditation conditions and demonstrated substantial conformance to the standards. We also demonstrated ongoing quality improvement and continuous conformance from any previous periods of CARF accreditation.

Our CARF accredited programs included Adult residential Treatment, and Adult Detoxification.
