Recovery Rights

RecoveryPeople advocates for the rights of persons in recovery.

  • Bill of Rights – Promotes the Recovery Bill of Rights developed by Faces and Voices of Recovery
  • Code of Ethics – Promotes NARR’s Recovery Residence Code of Ethics
  • Fair Housing Rights – Has become a recognized expert on fair housing rights for persons in recovery from substance use issues. Because persons in recovery meet the civil rights definition of “disabled”, a “protected class” under federal fair housing law, city and state regulation of housing based on our disability status is as discriminatory as housing regulation based on skin color or religious affiliation.
