In January 2021, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing hosted a technical expert panel (TEP) to explore ways to best demonstrate the value of recovery housing in the United States. The TEP reviewed the current landscape, identified areas for improvement and discussed potential options for improving the system. In partnership with the Opioid Response Network and the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, the National Council convened subject matter experts, including recovery housing leaders, researchers, treatment providers, national associations, federal agencies, Single State Agency directors and payers. The findings are included in this report.
