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.
