Although accreditation with CARF (the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) is strictly voluntary, all of New Dawn’s programs have been CARF accredited since 1997. CARF is an independent, nonprofit body whose international certification is the hallmark of quality because of their high treatment standards and requirement that accredited programs have a system in place for program improvement that relies at in part on gathering input from the persons served. Ours was the first program in the greater Sacramento area to be awarded this certification, a feat that demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest quality of treatment to our clients.
New Dawn is currently seeking new accreditation with The Joint Commission, know as the “Gold Standard” in healthcare, and as a result we have allowed our CARF accreditation to expire. We look forward to continuing our tradition of providing excellence and compassion in our delivery of care.
