Accreditation

Carolina House proudly serves all genders 17 and older in North and South Carolina struggling with eating disorders as well as other co-occurring disorders.

About CARF

Facility achieves rare perfect score with zero recommendations for improvement; CARF officials note “excellent clinical outcomes” and “exemplary” culinary program.

CARF International has announced that Carolina House, a licensed residential eating disorders treatment facility for women ages 18 and older, has been accredited for a period of three years, with zero recommendations for improvements.  The latest accreditation is the second consecutive three-year accreditation that the international accrediting body has awarded to Carolina House.

Why This Matters

“This is quite an honor for Carolina House and speaks volumes about their leadership and staff,” said David Romero, Regional Director for CRC Health Group’s eating disorder programs, of which Carolina House was previously a part of.  “In my career of 25 years, I have never heard of anyone getting a perfect score from CARF. Many consider Carolina House to be the gold standard in the eating disorder world, and it shows.”

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows Carolina House’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. 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 its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.

“I am exceptionally proud of our highly competent staff who go above and beyond for the patients at Carolina House everyday,” said Stacie McEntyre, previous Executive Director of the North Carolina based program. “I’m thrilled that the CARF reviewers recognized our staff dedication and evidence-based best practices in the treatment of eating disorders.”
