Florida Association of Recovery Residences
There are numerous Recovery Residences throughout Florida, and many provide safe, ethical, nurturing housing for the populations they serve. There are some however... that do not. FARR certification requires residences to demonstrate adherence to a rigorous set of standards. Compliance is affirmed through submission of extensive documentation, annual onsite inspections, participation in sponsored training and events and responsiveness to all reported concerns and/or grievances.
The Florida Association of Recovery Residences - FARR - was founded in 2011, out of the need to evaluate and monitor quality of care in the rapidly growing field of addiction recovery related services, throughout the state of Florida. It is the first association to develop and maintain a standards system for recovery residence programs in the state. It is FARR's committment to maintain these quality standards in the recovery residences throughout the State of Florida. As an affiliate member of the National Alliance for Recovery Residences, it is FARR's primary mission, to uphold "NARR's" recovery services in providing effective strategies to meet the expanding needs of FARR members.
