4.J. Be a Good Neighbor
NARR Standard 3.0 Core Principle: J. Be a Good Neighbor.
A well-run recovery residence is a “family” in a neighborhood. While new families have no requirement to engage with their new community, good neighbors take on that responsibility. Recovery residence operators are expected to function as good neighbors and pursue positive respectful outreach. This engagement is reinforced by the Social Model Recovery program domain, community orientation. Modeling good neighbor skills develops these assets for personal recovery capital. The standards in this domain also build on many of the six architectural considerations for recovery housing defined in Wittman (1993): location, appearance, facility oversight and security, and care and upkeep.26, 30 — NARR Standard 3.0 Compendium
