Dear Supporters,

We are pleased to report to you that Mariners Inn has been accredited for a three-year period for our Residential Treatment, Community Housing, and Outpatient Treatment substance abuse recovery programs. This is the fifth consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded Mariners Inn.

Additionally, the designation includes applied Governance Standards, identifying Mariners Inn’s Board of Trustees as uniquely committed to providing competent and visionary leadership. This decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization, and shows Mariners Inn’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It demonstrated to a team of surveyors during a virtual site survey in mid-July 2020, its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

Mariners Inn is a non-profit organization that has been providing residential substance abuse treatment and supportive services for adult homeless men in the Detroit area since 1925. Since then, our services have expanded to include at risk youth, young adults, and families.

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 and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.

David Sampson, CEO
Recovery is Real…..and Begins at Mariners Inn.
