Illicit Drug and Alcohol Screening in Recovery Housing


All recovery homes are required to maintain a home that is free from illicit drugs and alcohol.  Residents agree that they will not use or possess alcohol or illicit substances at any time, on or off the recovery housing property.  Having an effective process for screening enables you to ensure that you are maintaining this environment and that residents are held accountable for their commitment to not use illicit substances or alcohol while they are living in the home.
