Financing Recovery Support Services

For many individuals with substance use conditions and their families, the provision of recovery support services (RSS) is critical to achieving a greater quality of life. Yet, RSS are often insufficiently funded throughout the prevention, treatment, and recovery continuum of care largely due to funding constraints and a lack of information about alternative funding options. RSS are wide-ranging and should be provided based on the needs of individuals and their families. RSS are nonclinical services that assist individuals and families working toward recovery from substance use conditions. They include social supports and services such as child care, employment services, housing, peer coaching, and drug-free social activities.
