Being a Good Neighbor in Recovery Housing


An opportunity to live in a recovery home allows residents to live within a community.  Not only are they living with others in recovery, but they are living within a larger neighborhood.  Connecting outside the recovery home to the larger community can help residents feel connected and develop positive, pro-social skills to continue to live in neighborhoods after they leave recovery housing.
