Gold Standard of Treatment:

3-Year CARF Accreditation

We are excited to announce our 3-year CARF accreditation! The staff at Bridging the Gaps has worked tirelessly this year to prepare for our reaccreditation survey through CARF. While facing the Coronavirus pandemic, transitioning onto a telehealth platform, and adjusting to the everchanging challenges that this year has brought, we have also successfully navigated our CARF site survey.

Why does a CARF accreditation matter?

An accreditation through CARF is an indication of our organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the individuals we serve. We were able to demonstrate that our services, personnel, and documentation clearly indicate an established pattern of conformance to the CARF standards. We can assure our clients that we are using best practices within the addiction treatment industry.

What does a CARF accreditation tell us?

For three days in October we had two qualified professionals reviewing our program. Through that process, they are able to identify areas for our organization to grow. They helped us look at our organization through an objective lens so that we can become a stronger organization. In addition, they identified our strengths so that we can bolster them.

What did CARF have to say about Bridging the Gaps?

“Bridging the Gaps, through a novel approach of incorporating nutrition, amino acid therapy, and exercise with traditional therapies, indicates that the recovery rate for addiction treatment can be significantly enhanced. Specifically, by providing integrated treatment modalities targeted at physiological well-being and neurochemical rebalancing, the organization’s “treatment triad” of abstinence, therapy, and neurochemical rebalancing offers a broad range of recovery tools for clients.”

We are thrilled that an organization like CARF recognizes the significance and effectiveness of our integrated treatment approach. This comment gets to the heart of what we do. We work with our clients to help them heal – body, mind, and spirit.

Opportunities for growth

Moving into the next 3 years we will continue to grow our program. Bridging the Gaps is proud to tackle challenges and turn them into opportunities for growth. For example, it was noted that “Family members extolled the virtues of the family groups and the options to them to provide input into the care of their family member. Those living out of the area highlighted the Zoom meetings as being most appreciated, given their inability to attend in person.”

What was a weakness has become a strength through our ability to persevere in face of having to close the family program for a time due to COVID. We were able to pivot, develop an online format, and now our family program can reach family members in ways we only dreamed of before.

Attend a CARF accredited program
