Addiction recovery residences to improve health outcomes in high-risk men

Sponsor: Public Health Institute

Location(s): United States


Recovery residences (e.g., Oxford HousesTM, sober living houses, and recovery homes) are promising and affordable mechanisms to promote and sustain recovery from alcohol and drug abuse. Unfortunately, we know little about the experiences of LGBTIs in recovery residences and about the role that these residences may play in the recovery of LGBTIs, improvements to their overall health, and access to health services. Recovery residences developed specifically for members of the LGBTI community may be an especially promising way to tailor recovery support and increase overall health among this population, but few exist, and we know little about the programming of those that do.
