Recovery House

refers to safe, healthy, and substance-free living environments that support individuals in recovery from addiction. While recovery residences vary widely in structure, all are centered on peer support and a connection to services that promote long-term recovery. Recovery housing benefits individuals in recovery
by reinforcing a substance-free lifestyle and providing direct connections to other peers in recovery and recovery services and supports. Many residents live in recovery housing during and/or after outpatient addiction treatment. Length of stay is self-determined and can last for several months to years. Residents often share resources, give experiential advice about how to access health care and social services, find employment, budget and manage finances, handle legal problems, and build life skills. Many recovery homes are organized under the leadership of house manager and require residents to participate in a recovery program, such as 12-step and other mutual aid groups. Recovery housing ranges from independent, resident-run homes to staff-managed residences where clinical services are provided. The National Alliance of Recovery Residences (NARR) has classified four levels of recovery residences; the levels are differentiated by the rules and organizational structure of the house, and the types of services and supports that are provided within the home.
