LRADAC Receives Reaccreditation

Dec 06, 2017 02:28PM ● Published by Kathleen Maris

LRADAC (Lexington/Richland Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission) has received reaccreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF International). The accreditation process includes a three-day intensive survey of programs and staff, which occurs every three years.

The surveyors’ report identified no recommendations for changes or improvements and said that this accomplishment is achieved on only three percent of CARF surveys. The surveyors noted in their final report, “LRADAC demonstrates profound sensitivity to the individual needs of the persons served in the provision of services and protecting their privacy. ... Persons served interviewed believe they are treated with dignity and respect. They credit LRADAC and its staff with providing effective programs and resources that have been instrumental in their progress, recovery, and movement toward well-being.”

The surveyors also praised the agency’s prevention efforts in the community stating, “The organization’s prevention program goes well beyond handing out information to the community on alcohol and drug use,” and cited the many business partnerships and strategic prevention efforts being implemented.
