While state licensing is mandatory, adhering to much higher standards from non-profit accrediting organizations is reserved only for providers with the commitment and capabilities to provide better treatment. The majority of addiction treatment providers are not accredited. CARF is the highest level of accreditation in our industry. The review process takes nine to 12 months. Only 20% of addiction treatment providers meet and maintain these strict criteria.
