Our Accreditation

Organizations that meet CARF’s defined standards of care have attained the industry benchmark for quality.

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 that centres on enhancing the lives of the persons served.

CARF is the mark of quality in the field of mental health and addiction treatment. At Trafalgar, we are proud to embrace the internationally recognized organizational and program standards required by CARF for accreditation.

See our CARF Accreditation here.

What is accreditation?

Accreditation is official recognition that an organization is guided by internationally recognized service standards and best practices.

CARF accreditation consists of ongoing consultation and in-depth on-site reviews to help an organization achieve the highest quality of care for its customers.

Accreditation demonstrates that an organization has opened its service delivery and business process to outside scrutiny to improve the quality of its programs.

Accreditation is a public statement that an organization strives to ensure that its services are of the highest possible quality.

What does accreditation mean to persons served?

Accreditation demonstrates to customers that an organization is committed to:

  • reducing risk
  • addressing health and safety concerns
  • respecting cultural and individual preferences
  • providing the best possible quality of care

Accreditation also indicates that:

  • an organization values the input of its clients and is accountable to the community.
  • an organization has made a specific commitment to put the needs of its clients at the centre of everything it does.
  • an organization respects the rights and individuality of its patients.

What is CARF International?

Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.

CARF International is a nonprofit organization that offers accreditation services and support for health and human services programs.

CARF provides a framework, then consults and advises health and human service organizations to help improve their quality of service. Its goal is to ensure that persons served remain at the centre of the service delivery process.

COMING SOON

A survey team from CARF International* will be visiting Trafalgar on April 26-27, 2021.

We invited the surveyors to evaluate how well we meet international standards for quality.

The survey will tell us what we are doing well and ways we might improve. As a result of this survey, we may earn or continue accreditation.

As part of the survey, the surveyors will interview people who receive services, their families, our staff, and others. Some questions the survey team members might ask people are:

  • Do we provide a clean and safe setting?
  • Do you receive the services you need and want?
  • Are you treated with respect?
  • Do you take part in planning your services?
  • Are you told what you need to know about your services?
  • Are your questions answered in a way you understand?
  • Do you know where to go with questions or concerns?

If you would like to talk with one of the survey team members or want to learn more about CARF International, please let one of our staff members know. You may also contact CARF International directly.
