Ridgewood NJ, West Bergen Mental Healthcare, with offices in Ridgewood, Mahwah and Ramsey, has once again been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for a period of three years for the following programs: Day Treatment: Mental Health (Adults), Outpatient Treatment: Mental Health (Adults), and Outpatient Treatment: Mental Health (Children and Adolescents). West Bergen received its first Three-year Accreditation in 2003 and has maintained this accreditation ever since. This latest accreditation is West Bergen’s sixth consecutive.
West Bergen CEO, Michael Tozzoli, says of the accreditation, “We are extremely proud to be awarded another Three-Year Accreditation from CARF. This independent designation demonstrates West Bergen’s commitment to ensuring our clients receive the best possible care across our many programs. Congratulations to the entire West Bergen staff on a job well done.”
This acknowledgement by CARF represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to approximately 2,500 standards established by CARF. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation outcome has voluntarily 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 measurable, accountable and of the highest quality.
West Bergen Mental Healthcare is a private, nonprofit agency providing counseling, psychiatric and specialized services for all members of our communities – regardless of ability to pay. Since opening in 1963, the Agency has been a leader in the provision of quality, evidence-based mental health care programs and services.
