Recovery residence issue brief for state agency directors

Please note: The application information in this section applies only to state-level organizations, and not to individual providers or residences. NARR does not accredit or certify individual providers. Providers obtain NARR recognition through their state affiliate organizations. For information on existing affiliates, and contact information for our active affiliate organizations, please refer to the clickable map on our home page.

If you are in a state without a current NARR-affiliated organization and wish to know more about the process of forming one, please contact us at info@narronline.org. We will be posting updated information about this process in the near future.
