Course Description: 

 

This course reviews the California Social Model approach to recovery, providing a framework for understanding and addressing issues in residential settings from a peer-based perspective. The course draws on social model principles to develop specific suggestions for how recovery residences can involve and empower residents to address critical issues such as applicant interviews, involuntary eviction, management of house meetings, resident conflicts, and a variety of crises. The course also reviews how social model theory can be used to enhance interaction within recovery home organizations and with their surrounding communities. 

 

The social model approach developed in California offers useful suggestions for facilitating peer support in residential recovery settings. Key principles include using 12-step or other mutual help group strategies to create and facilitate a recovery environment, involving program participants in decision making and facility governance, using personal recovery experience as a way to help others, and emphasizing recovery as an interaction between the individual and their environment. 

 

This course presents specific, practical suggestions for enhancing social model principles in ways that facilitate peer support in a range of recovery residences.

This course is based upon material published as an author manuscript by the National Institute of Health and is available as an open access article.
