Unison Behavioral Health has received a three year accreditation by CARF international for its behavioral health treatment programs throughout Southeast Georgia.

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 the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body established consumer-focus standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.

The accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be award to an organization. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation has put itself through a 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.

The Accreditation Report reads, “Caring, educated, and diverse staff members deliver services to vulnerable clients, even during a pandemic and not missing a beat. Unison Behavioral Health appears likely to maintain and/or improve its current method of operation and demonstrates a commitment to ongoing quality improvement.”

Staff and leadership of Unison were honored to receive the accreditation.

Unison Behavioral Health is closely monitoring local, state, and federal mandates regarding COVID-19. We have made slight adjustments to both our Behavioral Health and IDD services:

  • Day Services for Behavioral Health are now open.
  • Day Services for IDD are now open.
  • Outpatient clinics are now available for both scheduled appointments and walk-ins. 
  • Residential programs are not allowing visitors at this time.
  • All clients and staff will be screened for fevers/symptoms before entering any clinic/program and asked to wear a face covering before entering any clinic/program. If you do not have one, we will provide one for you.
  • We ask that clients do not bring visitors to their appointments. 
  • We are utilizing telehealth as much as possible to maintain social distancing.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. Please check back for regular updates on our website and Facebook page.
