The Importance of Accreditation:  In 2009, North Carolina became one of a handful of states that mandated national accreditation for health care facilities. 

Accreditation is important for several reasons; l) government funding agencies such as Medicare and Medicaid want the assurance that government funds are being spent on the most effective and efficient programs and that financial waste is eliminated; 2) Accreditation assures that professional staff and caregivers are knowledgeable, competent and capable of meeting the challenges of change occurring in the delivery of health care services; and 3) for families seeking care for their autistic members, accreditation provides an added measure of confidence, much like the “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.” 

ASI is proud of its accreditation from CARF, and we acknowledge it as validation of our commitment to excellence in serving men and women with autism.
