Recovery Housing is a Housing Setting


Recovery housing is a housing setting.  It is not a treatment setting, a medical setting, an institution, or a facility.  Residents live in and use the space as any typical family would live in and use a home.

There are key elements that must be present for recovery housing as a housing setting, such as having a lease or rental agreement, resident-driven length of stay, treatment considerations, homelike environment, and recovery supports.


Let’s take a look at each of these critical elements that need to be present in order for the house to be considered a recovery home – as opposed to a different housing type.
