The Recovery Housing Convening met during NatCon 2017 to begin dealing with the intricate dynamics between federal, state and local policy imperatives that affect recovery housing. This meeting provided an opportunity for people with a broad range of perspectives, including people in recovery, recovery housing operators, local government, state government including housing and recovery agencies, and recovery and housing advocates, to come together to discuss timely and complicated issues. Participants had an opportunity to learn about existing research, emerging best practices, and the policy context of developing and operating recovery housing.
