Sober Home Certification Update – Addiction Conferences EMP Series
October 23, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Attorneys Jacqueline Bain and Karina Gonzalez will attend this Addiction Conferences EMP Series as guest presenters to provide an update to addiction treatment owners and operators regarding the ongoing issue of FARR Certification for Sober Homes.
The Firm recently sought clarification on behalf of a client as to whether FARR certification requirements for recovery residences also apply to facilities licensed by DCF to provide Day and Night treatment with community housing and to Res-5 housing. Article here
DCF’s order in response to our petition for declaratory statement reads as follows:
“A provider licensed for day or night treatment with community housing is NOT required to comply with the voluntary certification requirements outlined in sections 397.487 and 397.4871 in order to operate the community housing portion of the license.”
Clearly, our petition was successful. This settles the issue for now but until the treatment industry unites to track and respond to these kind of encroachments and misinterpretations then each provider will bear the entire burden of fighting for their survival.
