RiverValley Behavioral Health, a nonprofit organization specializing in the provision of mental and behavioral health services, was notified that it was been awarded a three-year reaccreditation—the highest level of accreditation—from CARF International (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body promoting quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative process that centers on enhancing the lives of the people receiving services. This was the twentieth consecutive reaccreditation that RiverValley has earned.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be given to an organization and demonstrates RiverValley’s substantial conformance to CARF standards. The three-year accreditation requires a rigorous peer review process, involving a virtual survey where RiverValley demonstrated to a team of surveyors its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality. 

RiverValley Behavioral Health’s President & CEO Dr. Wanda Figueroa-Peralta said, “Being a CARF accredited agency demonstrates RiverValley’s commitment and dedication to providing the highest quality of care to our clients and communities served. We recognize our RiverValley team for their expertise and conformance to accreditation standards that has earned this recognition.”
