Circle Park Awarded Seventh Consecutive Three-Year CARF Accreditation

CARF International (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) announced today that Circle Park Behavioral Health Services has been re-accredited for a period of three years for its Alcohol and Other Drugs Addictions Outpatient Treatment programs, Intensive Outpatient Treatment, Diversion programs, and its Residential Treatment Center for Women and their Children-The Chrysalis Center. 

The latest accreditation is the seventh consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body has awarded to Circle Park Behavioral Health Services; the county authority on the prevention and treatment of Alcohol and Other Drugs Addictions, and the sole accredited outpatient facility in Florence County.

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 and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.

Circle Park Behavioral Heath Services is a nonprofit organization with offices in Florence, SC. It was established in 1973 and provides outpatient treatment for Alcohol and Other Drugs , Behavioral Problems, Drug Testing, Prevention Programs, Drug Court Services, a Men’s Residential Facility, and Specialized Women’s Services at the Chrysalis Center.

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 centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. 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.
