1.C. Culture of Empowerment
NARR Standard 3.0 Core Principle: C. Create a Culture of Empowerment.
This principle is founded on the importance of building human recovery capital. As residents are empowered through self-governance, their reserves of self-determination, self-confidence, skills, and hope—important factors for recovery— are enhanced. This capital becomes a resource for individuals’ ability to maintain their recovery and is essential for any recovery residence. The standards under this principle reflect the Social Model Philosophy Scale (SMPS), which is a useful tool to assess and operationalize a resident-empowered, rather than a hierarchical, community. — NARR Standard 3.0 Compendium
