Recovery House In Pennsylvania

When searching for a recovery house in Pennsylvania individuals and families should always ask the recovery residence if they are PARR certified. By not selecting a PARR certified recovery house you are entering into a situation with no oversight. Right now in PA there is no other accrediting body to certify recovery homes, and these homes are not mandated to be evaluated. It is a voluntary commitment chosen by the owner of the house to be held to a strict code of ethics. The level II certification standards criteria include a 24 hour live in house manager, policy & procedures, structured house rules, peer-run groups, drug screening, house meetings, and involved in self-help/treatment services such as intensive outpatient or outpatient.  NARR also engages in empirical research studies to determine the success of individuals in sober living homes as opposed to not entering a recovery residence. Research suggests an individual has a greater chance of maintaining abstinence by entering into a recovery residence.
