Accreditation is imperfect but does have considerable merit. When we refer to a program, we do consider accreditation but sometimes prefer a school or program that is not accredited.
Accreditation is addressed by two entirely separate kinds of accrediting agencies that do not overlap, except for the area of safety. Educational accreditation and therapeutic accreditation are separate matters. No single agency that we are aware of accredits both. When programs and schools claim accreditation, you need to look closely at who is doing the accrediting.
Medical insurance coverage usually depends upon therapeutic accreditation. Much more detail on Main Page on Accreditation.
Please read our full disclaimer. You are responsible for verifying our information before acting on it.
