HUD Recovery Housing Policy Brief: Understanding the Impact and Potential for Health Centers

The intent of the HUD Brief is to outline expectations of how HUD funded Recovery Housing should be designed, operated, and integrated in a Continuum of Care’s system of addressing substance abuse disorders and other vulnerabilities impacting the population facing homelessness and housing instability. An individual's choice should govern whether a homeless household enters into Recovery Housing and this type of housing should not be the sole option in any system. HUD believes that the Recovery Housing model can produce positive outcomes and meet specific needs of those with substance abuse disorders within a homeless system, when both choice and a core set of criteria and characteristics are clearly defined and followed.
