March 2017—C4 leadership and staff are participating in “Recovery Housing Briefing: Effectiveness, Challenges and Opportunities” on March 22 in the U.S. Capitol Visitor’s Center (Washington, DC). Recovery housing offers sober, safe, and healthy living environments and plays a critical role in the community fabric of housing and recovery support services.

The conference is hosted by the Congressional Addiction, Treatment & Recovery Caucus. C4 is proud to join in support as a co-sponsor along with Facing Addition, National Council for Behavioral Health, National Alliance for Recovery Residences, Young People in Recovery, Recovery Communities of North Carolina, and California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals.

C4 authors, Kristen Paquette and Laura Winn, published two articles about bringing recovery housing to scale and its role in homeless settings in the Journal of Dual Diagnosis in 2016. Read more.
