What is accreditation?
Accreditation is a process that demonstrates a provider has met standards for the quality of its services. CARF International establishes these standards to guide providers in offering their services and also uses the standards to evaluate how well a provider is serving people and how it can improve. 
What is a survey?
As a step toward accreditation, a provider invites CARF International to send a team of professionals, called surveyors, to visit its site and evaluate its services for quality. The surveyors consult with staff members and interview people who use the provider's services. Based on the surveyors' review the provider may be awarded accreditation for a term of one or three years. In some cases, the provider may need to improve its services before it can become accredited.

Pathways has completed our 3rd survey and received a 3 year accreditation. Our Next survey date will be December 2013.
