THE SENATE UNANIMOUSLY PASSES A BILL FOR SOBER HOMES CERTIFICATION
The state Senate unanimously passed a bill that encourages sober home operators to certify their homes. Only certification from the National Alliance for Recovery Residences or another Dept of Mental Health and Addiction Services approved organization will qualify a home thus incentivising operators. The operators also must stock at least two doses of an opioid overdose-reversal drug in their homes and train residents on how to use it. Those who mislead tenants could be charged with engaging in unfair trade practices. The hope is that people will be more likely to choose homes that are on the DMHAS list. And that could make those who run shady sober houses less likely to succeed in the state.
