Recovery residences or “sober living homes” are intended to be supportive transitional environments for individuals preparing to face the world during recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. These residences rely upon peer group recovery to help individuals gain strength and coping skills in a safe environment.
The lessons in this course will cover an overview of the operations of a recovery residence including the difference in types of settings, levels of care and, recovery residence standards.
The lessons will explore the National Alliance of Recovery Residences and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
We will also discuss appropriate background screenings for employees, policies and procedures and documentation, as well as how the Fair Housing Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act effect.
This course will award 20 continuing education hours.
The grandparenting phase ends October 2017.
A grandparenting application period is time-limited and specifically designed to acknowledge the competency of those who are currently doing the work that is expected of a Certified Recovery Residence Administrator. To qualify during grandparenting, candidates must meet established criteria; however, the certification examination is suspended during this period.
During the “Grandparenting Phase” you only need 25 hours of continuing education credits to submit your application. The remaining 75 credits have to be completed before the first expiration date of your credential.
