About this Event

The Vermont Alliance for Recovery Residences (VTARR) is the Vermont Affiliate to the National Alliance of Recovery Residences (NARR). We are committed to improving access to Recovery Residences through established national standards, a fair and transparent certification process, community engagement, education, technical assistance, research, and advocacy.

Over 8,500 Vermonters are currently in some form of medically assisted treatment. Thousands of individuals are pursuing recovery through other forms of therapy. There are many forms of substance use disorder (SUD). Vermont has the 4th highest rate of alcohol dependence and the highest rate of illicit drug use disorder in the country. Currently there are only recovery beds available for 2% of this population. Arguably, recovery housing is the next critical link to addressing Vermont’s overall SUD crisis. Efforts are underway to scale this critical resource and, at the same time, systems and legislation are needed to establish sustainability, ensure quality and combat stigma.
