CARF Accreditation logoRiverside is proud to have continuously been awarded the highest level of accreditation by CARF since our initial examination in 2001. This confirms that our programs and services meet hundreds of standards and that we are dedicated to continuous quality improvement.

QUEST Department of Developmental Services

The Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services (DDS) provides a survey and certification process to ensure high quality services. This process involves a comprehensive review of all programs and services offered by organizations across Massachusetts. Riverside has consistently been awarded the maximum, two year certification.

Over the years, Riverside’s four Clubhouses have all maintained their status as accredited by Clubhouse International. They hold three year accreditations, the highest Clubhouse International accreditation possible.


Riverside’s quality management team oversees not only accreditation, but also an integrated system of data collection and evaluation that enables us to monitor and enhance the services we provide.
