Philosophical Frameworks

Recovery residences promote recovery, which is “a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential (SAMHSA 2012). According to the NARR, recovery residences accomplish this:

  • through social model recovery (SMR),
  • by providing four supportive dimensions (SD),
  • by upholding recovery principles (RP), and
  • by increasing recovery capital (RC).
