A recovery residence refers to a supportive, shared living environment founded on peer support and connection to community services that promote a person's active participation in their own recovery. Recovery residences are free from alcohol and other substances and are a common pathway used to transition back into the community following residential treatment.
Since recovery residences can vary, the National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR) defined four levels of support for recovery residences that you can find here.
The Texas Health and Human Services Commission partners with Oxford House, Inc. to provide level 1 group homes and recovery residences across Texas.
