Congratulations to our Healthy Partnerships division!

CARF has issued three-year accreditations for the Adult Intensive Outpatient Treatment for Integrated Substance Use and Mental Health Treatment and Adult Outpatient Treatment for integrated Substance Use and Mental Health Treatment offered by our Healthy Partnerships division. These are Caminar’s first accreditations for these services.

The independent CARF evaluators identified a number of strengths, including:

  • “The staff members are competent, dedicated, experienced, and tenured. They are able to maintain a professional approach with the clients while developing a helpful and supportive relationship.”

  • “The programs give individuals pride and a sense of accomplishment, which greatly contribute to their ability to function in the future. This was especially evidenced by the graduation wall that can be seen as soon as one enters the building. The wall consists of handprints of all past clients who have graduated from the program along with an uplifting saying or piece of advice for those still in the programs.”

  • “The medical staff is vested in its clients’ recovery process. It works hard to ensure that clients are able to obtain necessary medications, which in turn helps to improve client well-being and stability.”

This outcome was the result of dedicated work on the part of our Solano Region’s leadership, the Healthy Partnerships team, and our Operations teams.

By pursuing and achieving accreditation, Caminar has demonstrated that it meets international standards for quality and is committed to pursuing excellence. 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 on-site visits its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

By pursuing and achieving accreditation, Caminar has demonstrated that it meets international standards for quality and is committed to pursuing excellence. 

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be given to an organization and shows our organization’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. 

We are delighted that CARF surveyors identified many areas of strength. To list just a few:
 
“The staff members at Caminar are an inspiration for the work they do on a daily basis. They are strong believers in the rights of persons served and demonstrate this to the clients on a regular basis.”
 
“Clients stated that they appreciate the staff and the services. One person said that she is grateful for the services because, without them, she would have been living in her car and been without income. All clients interviewed spoke of their satisfaction with the services provided.”
 
“All clients said that staff members are warm, welcoming, energetic, respectful, and engaging… Caminar seems to do very well at hiring staff with both skills and heart.”
 
“A strength of Caminar is the large array of services that it provides. This allows continuity of care that clearly promotes the recovery of clients who require longer-term assistance.”

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 and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services. 

We are grateful to the entire Caminar team who contributed to this success!
