CARF — CARF does not prevent FRAUD!
The "Commission on Accreditation for Rehab Facilities" means nothing as to the quality of any rehab provider. The best thing to do is to check with other clients/patients. You are better off going to a hospital based rehab provider, to make sure there is a legitimate physician on staff, and there need to be multiple levels of accountability. Beware of private rehab providers as they are out for the big bucks, not your rehabilitation. Carf is just a little "bump in the road" that unscrupulous providers pay for to look good on paper for the next three years, usually to be able to continue extracting large amounts of federally matched state funds.
