Our mission is to create a network of Recovery Homes (clean and sober living homes) to help people suffering from addiction, re-assimilate into society by supporting the transitions from addiction, to recovery, to independent living.
Struggling with what to do after treatment? Being a part of a clean and sober living home is a great second step.
Below is a map of Vermont featuring all of our recovery home (clean and sober living home) locations.
VFOR has been selected by Hannaford Supermarkets, with the help of Jody White to benefit in their monthly community fundraiser!
So if you're grocery shopping in Franklin County and see the box, drop some change in to help your favorite local non-profit. Every little bit helps, and we can't be thankful enough for all the help we receive. It really does make a difference in the lives of others! #recoveryworks#nonprofit
Hello everyone! VFOR is actively seeking volunteers for our Waterbury and South Burlington (Women) homes. If you would like to give a few hours of your time weekly to a great cause, please let us know! #volunteer#recoveryworks#recoveryhomes
Day 2! David Riegel, our Executive Director is talking with Beth Fisher Sanders - Chair of the Standards Committee with NARR.
The National Alliance for Recovery Residences has a set of standards designed to define the spectrum of recovery oriented housing and services and distinguishes four different types, which are known as “levels” or “levels of support". It's extremely important to mention that these standards were created by a committee with minds from around the country, and many different levels of care; from the Oxford House model, to high-intensity fully-staffed models.
Many of us in Vermont have worked over the last several years to create a NARR Affiliate called the Vermont Alliance of Recovery Residences (VTARR). We will be adopting standards and certifying the homes in Vermont who are interested in implementing best practices and operating at the highest levels.
If you would like to get involved with VTARR please reach out to David, or send us a message through Facebook.
