NORWALK, Conn. -- A substance abuse treatment program in Norwalk has been awarded its fifth three-year accreditation.
The accreditation to Liberation Programs is for its residential, outpatient and intensive outpatient programs from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, or CARF International.
The achievement indicates the organization's "dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served," CARF President Brian Boon, Ph.D., said in a letter.
"Our goal is to help (participants) lead better lives, and we want that to come across in everything we do," said Liberation Programs President/CEO Alan Mathis.
Liberation Programs served 2,087 people last year, achieving recovery outcomes that are above the state averages for comparable treatment programs, according to a release.
An array of services helps families from Greenwich to Bridgeport, according to Dr. Patti Juliana, chief program officer.
Eighty percent of Liberation’s outpatient participants left the program substance-free, 18 percent higher than the Connecticut state average, the release said.
An independent accrediting body, CARF promotes the quality, value and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of the persons served.
