Setting the Standard for Recovery Residences in South Carolina

In 2011 the National Alliance of Recovery Residences (NARR) made history by establishing a national standard for all recovery residences. This standard defines the spectrum of recovery oriented housing and services and distinguishes four different types, which are known as “levels” or “levels of support.” The Standard of Care was developed through a strength-based and collaborative approach that solicited input from all major regional and national recovery housing organizations. Guidance for the standard was also received from recovery residence providers from across the nation representing all four levels of support and nationally recognized recovery support stakeholders.

In May 2016 NARR released its Code of Ethics for recovery residences. This Code is designed for operators, staff, peer leaders and volunteers working in any recovery home. For more about Recovery Residence Quality Standards, please click here.
