The following two documents were sent to the heads of each state’s primary substance abuse agency, requesting state funding for recovery residences and their supporting organizations.
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 email@example.com. We will be posting updated information about this process in the near future.

This is an updated version of guidance first issued in 1999, and includes an authoritative summary of Federal fair housing law as it applies to housing shared by individuals with substance use disorders.
This report, titled “Information on Recovery Housing Prevalence, Selected States’ Oversight, and Funding,” was the GAO’s response to a request for information from Senators Elizabeth Warren, Marco Rubio and Orrin Hatch.
Building Recovery: State Policy Guide for Supporting Recovery Housing, National Council for Behavioral Health, April 2018
This is a short, easy-to-read set of recommendations for state legislatures and agencies. It includes recommendations for support, oversight legislation, and policies that will support the health and expansion of recovery housing systems that are aligned with best practices. NARR collaborated in the production of this guide.
This guide will help state policy and funding agencies address the unique challenges in developing recovery housing resources that can adequately support individuals receiving medication-assisted treatment.
This guide describes the rights under the Americans With Disabilities and Fair Housing Acts for individuals receiving medication-assisted treatment. Guide covers housing, employment and other forms of discrimination, and the application of disability rights laws.
These are powerful statements about fair housing from two noted civil rights attorneys, in response to suggestions that civil rights laws should be amended to reduce or eliminate fair housing protections for individuals recovering from substance use disorders. They also discuss the history of these protections in the context of the broader evolution of fair housing and other civil rights in America.
