Committee Hearing takes place within twelve legislative days.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 16 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO RECOVERY HOUSING ACCREDITATION AND LICENSING.
This bill creates licensing for recovery housing, which is housing for individuals recovering from substance use disorders that provides a safe and supportive substance-free environment and that may include peer support and other recovery support services. Right now recovery housing has no oversight although DSAMH has broad authority to license any setting that treatment is provided. This bill creates guidelines for the Division to actually oversee recovery housing and for recovery housing to obtain licensure by the Division.
Takes effect upon being signed into law
