South Carolina Alliance for Recovery Residences

South Carolina Alliance for Recovery Residences (SCARR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which was formed in 2018 to serve the recovery community by providing a single point of access for information regarding recovery residences and related organizations in the state. The primary focus of SCARR is the development and maintenance of clear and consistent standards for recovery residences in South Carolina and use these standards as the basis for non-biased certification state-wide. SCARR strives to maintain clear communication regarding these standards of care for recovery residences and the associated communities, while ensuring credibility of our process and findings, ethical conduct of our members, and excellence in expectations in our interactions with the South Carolina recovery community.

As an affiliate of the National Alliance for Recovery Residences, SCARR is responsible for ensuring that our recovery residence certification process is consistent with the national standard.

A reliable, safe, clean and supportive living environment is a critical component to maximize the likelihood of successful navigation of early recovery. The South Carolina Alliance for Recovery Residences was created by the recovery community in our state to provide transparent certification of these environments so that our peers may focus on their personal recoveries in this critical time of their lives. ”
