Helping Recovery Residences Adapt to Support People with Medication-Assisted Recovery

National Alliance for Recovery ResidencesThis brief from the National Alliance for Recovery Residences provides basic guidance, key considerations, and tips and tools for recovery residence operators that are supporting or want to support individuals who choose medication-assisted treatment. Medication-assisted treatment can help address opioid dependence and addiction as well as support long-term recovery for individuals using these medications, including for those who have been involved in the criminal justice system. As one key recovery support, access to quality recovery housing can enhance a person’s likelihood of long-term success. Specific to opioid use disorders, the brief provides guidance for recovery residence operators to implement cultural and operational changes that support medication-assisted treatment as part of recovery.
