The Recovery Housing Assistance Program (RHAP) is a state-funded option for individuals wanting to initiate and sustain recovery efforts in a safe, stable living environment. Up to 12 weeks of an eligible individual’s living expenses will be paid directly to a Recovery Housing Assistance Program provider.
Benefits of Recovery Housing access includes:
This transitional housing provides a physically and emotionally safe, secure, and respectful environment for individuals with the chronic disease of addiction.
Daily and weekly schedules and routines provide structure for individuals to focus on physical, social, mental, and community wellness. Regular house meetings, group activities, and community volunteering foster accountability.
Connecting individuals to their local community to build individual resources and adapt to a recovery lifestyle improves social connections and feelings of acceptance.
A 24-hour network of peers and trained staff dedicated to recovery provides encouragement and support when needed. Individuals often have opportunities to become mentors to other residents fostering individual and community dependability.
Rules and responsibilities
Following rules, paying rent, and completing delegated tasks while being involved in work, school, or treatment instills a sense of purpose and increases self-esteem.
