The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) has designated Dennis Theriault as an "Accreditation Surveyor." Mr. Theriault is Spectrum's director of quality improvement, a position he has held since 2004. CARF is a private, not-for-profit organization that promotes quality rehabilitation facilities and evaluates over 5,500 treatment providers internationally. Spectrum independently seeks accreditation from CARF to demonstrate that our treatment programs meet rigorous quality standards. Currently, Spectrum's inpatient and outpatient treatment programs in Massachusetts, in-prison treatment programs in Georgia, and residential treatment program in Sykesville, Maryland, are CARF accredited. As an accreditation surveyor, Mr. Theriault will collaborate with a team of CARF surveyors several times a year to perform on-site evaluations. This role will allow Mr. Theriault to become an expert in CARF standards, and will offer him an in-depth look at how other CARF-accredited programs tackle challenges similar to those faced by Spectrum. Mr. Theriault holds a Bachelor's degree in psychology and a Master's degree in business administration.
