Oceanside Community Services has been Awarded

CARF Accreditation 2012 – 2015

 CARF International announced that Oceanside Community Services has been accredited for a three year period for its Outpatient Treatment Programs in Integrated Adult and Children’s Services. This is the first accreditation that the international accrediting body has awarded to an outpatient clinic in northern New England.

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. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.

The accreditation decision is awarded to organizations that, on balance, demonstrate that the persons served are benefiting from the services. An organization receiving a 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 it is committed to significantly conforming to CARF’s accreditation conditions and standards.

Oceanside Community Services is a for profit organization with offices located at 209 Main Street Suite 302 & 303, Saco Maine.  It has been providing outpatient mental health services for individuals and families in the Saco area since March 2010.
