New Certifying Body for Recovery Residences

The Office of Behavioral Health is pleased to announce that the Colorado Association of Recovery Residences (CARR) has been approved as a certifying body for recovery residences in Colorado. Pursuant to 25-1.5-108.5, C.R.S. (HB 19-1009), recovery residences are required to obtain a certification from CARR in order to operate in Colorado and receive referrals from health care providers or health care facilities for individuals in need of recovery support services.
