New Report Highlights Benefit of Housing, Recovery Support Services
Research shows that recovery housing contributes to improved outcomes for individuals who are recovering from addiction. Despite this, the current health care system gives little attention to recovery support services, like recovery housing, that help individuals manage and sustain long-term recovery. Earlier this year, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, through funding from the Opioid Response Network, hosted a technical expert panel (TEP) to explore ways to best demonstrate the value of recovery housing in the United States. Several recommendations to improve and expand recovery housing in the U.S. were identified by the TEP in a new report, Demonstrating the Value of Recovery housing: Technical Expert Panel Findings.
