The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities announces that Sierra Recovery Center has been accredited for three years. CARF accredited the recovery agency for four “Alcohol and Other Drugs/ Addictions for Adults” programs: Community Housing, Detoxification, Outpatient Treatment and Residential Treatment.

This latest accreditation is the second consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting commission has awarded to Sierra Recovery Center. This accreditation represents the highest level that can be awarded to an organization and shows SRC’s substantial conformance to the standards established by CARF. An organization receiving the Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable and accountable.

“Receiving this CARF accreditation speaks volumes about the high quality programs that Sierra Recovery Center has strived for and accomplished for our clients and their families,” said Joan Anderson, director of operations for SRC. “We are all very proud of this agency for achieving such high marks for quality service.”

Sierra Recovery Center is a 501c3 nonprofit with its administrative offices and Outpatient Treatment located at 972 B Tallac Ave., in South Lake Tahoe. It has been providing substance abuse treatment services to residents of rural Northern California and rural Northern Nevada since 1969.

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 that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served.
