Recovery housing, commonly referred to as sober living homes, recovery homes, or recovery residencies, are safe, healthy, family-like substance-free living environments that support individuals in recovery from substance use disorders, commonly referred to as addiction. At present, little is known about recovery housing in the state of Kentucky.
The purpose of this Kentucky Opioid Response Effort (KORE)-funded program is to access the landscape of recovery housing in Kentucky. Specifically, this program aims to identify the number and location of recovery houses, the array of services they offer to residents, and the challenges recovery housing owners/operators face.
In addition, this program will help to inform the need for best practices related to recovery housing in Kentucky. This program will also assist in the development of a recovery housing portal that will ultimately contain a recovery housing directory and resource repository that will be available to the public.
