Recovery Housing Staffing > Staffing: Training

 

There is no requirement that staff receive specific training or certification prior to working in recovery housing.  However, once hired, all staff should be educated about the Social Model of Recovery, the disease of addiction, the recovery process, and provide training specific to your recovery home policies and procedures.

Annual reviews should occur with staff at a minimum.
