The Florida Association of Recovery Residences (FARR) was founded in 2011 out of the need to evaluate and monitor standards-based recovery support services provided in community-based, residential settings throughout Florida. FARR is the Florida Affiliate of the National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR).
FARR supports Recovery Residence providers in their effort to deliver quality recovery-oriented housing opportunities to persons in recovery who seek to reside in abstinence-based, peer supportive environments. We believe this is best achieved through encouraging and monitoring provider compliance with national standards promulgated for this purpose. We further believe that all people have the right to recover in an atmosphere which meets their special needs as well as their basic needs for safety, dignity and respect.
To fairly certify Florida Recovery Residences, on a voluntary basis, as having demonstrated compliance with the NARR Standard and FARR Code of Ethics. FARR provides training for owners, managers and staff of Recovery Residences to enhance and inform their delivery of quality services.
FARR is committed to provide fair, impartial support and encouragement to recovery residence providers who express a willingness to achieve compliance with the NARR Standard and FARR Code of Ethics. FARR is further committed to participate in academic research studies focused on ROSC, Recovery Management and residents’ personal development of Recovery Capital.
FARR Annual Summit 2015 - Orlando
August 4 @ 8:15 am - 5:30 pm
Cost: 105 Dollars
The 2015 FARR Summit will be held at the Omni Orlando Resort at Champions Gate in Orlando onAugust 4th, 2015. The 300 seat venue is expected to sell out due to passage of HB 21 into law, effective July 1, 2015. Recovery Residence owners and managers of all four distinct support levels (I, II, III & IV) will want to attend the Summit to learn how the law impacts their operations. If certification is voluntary, what’s the big deal? What are the national standards referenced by the law? What’s a “Recovery Residence Administrator”? Who is required to pass level 2 background checks? These and other questions will be addressed during the FARR Summit. Beyond a comprehensive discussion regarding the legislative impact to PHPs, IOPs and Recovery Residences, the FARR 2015 Summit focuses on Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) and Recovery Management (RM)
