Welcome to CORE-NC: Community Opioid Resources Engine for North Carolina
Recovery Housing Support
What is this strategy?
Fund programs offering recovery housing support to people in treatment or recovery, or people who use drugs, such as assistance with rent, move-in deposits, or utilities; or fund recovery housing programs that provide housing to individuals receiving Medication-Assisted Treatment for opioid use disorder.
Why recovery housing support?
Providing stable housing is fundamental to establishing quality of individual and communal life and empowering people who use opioids to reduce the harms of drugs. Particularly when housing is offered using Housing First principles, this strategy can be a highly impactful first step to an individual regaining stability.
