CARF International recently announced that Mariners Inn has been accredited for a period of three years for its Residential Treatment and Community Housing programs. The latest accreditation is the fourth consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded Mariners Inn.
This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.
Mariners Inn has been providing residential substance abuse treatment for adult homeless men in the Detroit area since 1928. Since then, its services have expanded to include at risk youth, young adults, and families. Mariners Inn’s CEO, David Sampson, says of the accreditation, “Earning another three-year accreditation speaks to the passion, dedication, and professionalism of Mariners Inn and its stakeholders. Holding our consumers in the highest esteem, while providing them the necessary tools to succeed, is a driving force in our zeal to continue the mission of helping to save lives. We are grateful for the designation and remain forever committed to continuously improving the services that CARF has recognized us for with the highest accreditation level possible.”
CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
