The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, or CARF International, assists service providers in improving the quality of their services, demonstrating value, and meeting internationally recognized organizational and program standards. CARF accreditation signals a service provider's commitment to continually improving services, encouraging feedback, and serving the community.

The programs reflect knowledge of the latest innovative research, thereby increasing the consumers’ successful outcomes through treatment and continued recovery.
- RCF’s rapid response and implementation of safety features during the pandemic were utilized as models for other providers to follow. Referral sources indicated that RCF was diligent in implementing safety protocols for both staff and consumers.
