USA. Recovery Housing: Best practices and suggested guidelines.

(…) The SUPPORT legislation seeks to improve resident care for individuals suffering from a substance use disorder who are in need of supportive recovery-oriented transitional housing. The Administration has dedicated time, attention, and resources to ensuring that individuals with substance use disorders have access to lifesaving medications, treatments, and services in settings throughout the continuum of care, including recovery housing. This document is intended to serve as a guidance tool for states, governing bodies, treatment providers, recovery house operators, and other interested stakeholders to improve the health of their citizens related to substance use issues. This report identifies ten specific areas, or guiding principles, that will assist states and federal policy makers in defining and understanding what comprises safe, effective, and legal recovery housing.
