4.J.30. Responsive neighbor
NARR Standard 3.0: 4.J.30. Be responsive to neighbor concerns.
Just as new residents are joining a community and must work to integrate with and care for the other residents, recovery residence communities can model this behavior by integrating with the neighborhood they are part of. In residential zoning, this includes blending in as a single-family home, not posting signage, and maintaining a pleasant residence. This reinforces the goal that the house is part of a neighborhood, not an island unto itself. This can also help reduce discrimination toward residents who are working to integrate themselves into the community. — NARR Standard 3.0 Compendium
