WHAT IS NSTARR?
NSTARR is the National Study of Treatment and Addiction Recovery Residences.
Safe and stable housing is essential to recovery from addiction to alcohol and drugs. Recovery housing represents a unique and innovative way to ensure that individuals in recovery have access to housing that facilitates recovery.
ADDRESSING RESEARCH GAPS
Research on recovery housing has generally focused on certain types of recovery housing, or on recovery housing in specific geographic regions.
We also lack tools necessary to provide a complete picture of the national recovery housing landscape. NSTARR will address these critical gaps.
NSTARR is the largest and most diverse study of recovery housing to date.
It lays the groundwork for observing this important component of the housing, treatment, and recovery support services landscape.
NSTARR will facilitate future research on recovery residences.
