Accreditation is an important quality improvement process for an organization to experience.

In 2018, we will be applying for Accreditation through the CARF. In 2018 we will be applying for Accreditation through the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). This will be the first accreditation survey for AMHS-KFLA since the agency was created through the amalgamation of Frontenac Community Mental Health and Addiction Services (FCMHAS) and Lennox and Addington Addiction and Community Mental Health Services (LAACMHS) in 2015.
