MCRSP accredits recovery residences throughout the State of Missouri based on standards established by the National Alliance of Recovery Residences (NARR). In 2011, NARR made history by establishing a national standard for recovery residences. This standard categorizes recovery-oriented housing and services into four distinct types referred to as “levels” or “levels of support.”
The NARR Standard was developed through a strength-based and collaborative approach that solicited input from all major regional and national recovery housing organizations. Recovery residence providers from across the nation, representing all four levels of support, and nationally recognized recovery support stakeholders contributed guidance for the standard. NARR’s standards focus on a common Code of Ethics, as well as Access, Quality and Choice.
