Manor, TX, United States, 2011/09/23 - Benchmark Recovery Center is proud to support the accreditation standards of The National Association of Recovery Residences. BRC & NAAR share the common goal to help promote long-term recovery from addiction through various residential programs.
Benchmark Recovery Center is proud to support the accreditation standards of The National Association of Recovery Residences. NARR announced their accreditation standards on September 21, at the 2011 National Conference on Addiction Disorders In San Diego, California. Benchmark Recovery Center hosted the ceremony and reception on behalf of NARR.
The National Association of Recovery Residences (NARR) brings together 48 member organizations who advocate for thoughtful, progressive, post-treatment care for those in recovery. Benchmark Recovery joins NARR in support of uniting the sober living industry and its mission to help recovering addicts as they transition into sober, productive lives.
Benchmark and NAAR share the common goal to help promote long-term recovery from addiction through various residential programs. Through the core values of hope, compassion, respect, honesty and fairness, NARR aims to strengthen the voice of recovering addicts well as help develop national standards for recovery residences.
Beth Fisher, NARR Director, stated,“Our coalition’s unified voice will be more influential regarding other issues that affect people and families in recovery and residential recovery service providers, such as funding; program evaluation; and housing, criminal history and employment discrimination.”
The purpose of Benchmark Recovery Center is to provide a safe, secure environment free of alcohol and drugs for the adult alcoholic/addict who wishes to recover and experience permanent sobriety. BRC's belief is that alcoholism and drug addiction are lifelong, chronic, progressive diseases which demand a lifelong set of practices as a way of living if one is to experience permanent recovery. BRC's commitment to their residents is this: to provide a set of life skills and spiritual practices which will be incorporated and assimilated into their minds and hearts and allow them to recreate and reclaim their lives.
