CARF International announced that Mariners Inn has been accredited for a three-year period for its Residential Treatment, Community Housing, and Outpatient Treatment substance abuse recovery programs. This is the fifth consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body has awarded Mariners Inn. Additionally, the designation includes applied Governance Standards, identifying Mariners Inn’s Board of Trustees as uniquely committed to providing competent and visionary leadership. Mariners Inn is the only organization of its kind in Michigan to have received the Governance Standards designation.
This decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization, and shows Mariners Inn’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 is a non-profit organization with offices at 445 Ledyard Street, Detroit, MI, 48201. It has been providing residential substance abuse treatment and supportive services for adult homeless men in the Detroit area since 1925. 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 in the midst of Detroit’s revitalization and surrounded by new development 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.”
