Required Evaluation Criteria to Meet National Quality Standards

Recovery housing operators have wide discretion regarding the particular criteria that they will use when determining if a resident is to be accepted into the recovery housing program, but they can go beyond these minimum criteria to design their specific and unique programs.

Though minimum criteria differ by Level of Support, all ORH certified recovery homes, no matter their level of support, must ensure that residents who are applying to move into the home meet the following criteria.

The applicant is a person with a substance use disorder.

A home may also seek to service individuals who have a substance use disorder as well as be a member of another target population. Such as people with substance use disorders who also have a mental health disability, are a Veteran, have a history of involvement in the criminal justice system, or other factors. However, all individuals who are permitted to move into the home must be individuals who identify as individuals with a substance use disorder.

The applicant is willing to participate in recovery planning.

Recovery planning is a required component of living in recovery residences, evaluation criteria must measure if a person is willing to participate in your program’s recovery planning process.

The applicant is willing to support others in their recovery.

Evaluation if the person is willing to provide support to other residents. All residents in recovery housing not only get support but provide support to one another. Your evaluation criteria must measure if a person is willing to provide this type of support while living in the home.

The applicant is willing to maintain a drug and alcohol-free living environment.

All recovery homes must ensure that residents are able to refrain from the use of illicit drugs and alcohol both on and off the property. Additionally, the home must measure that the person is willing to ensure that the property is always free from illicit drugs and alcohol.

Now let’s look at minimum criteria by Level of Support.
