Influencing and Creating Change

Two years ago, Streetohome, thanks to in-kind support from KPMG, led the development of a business case for a new addiction recovery housing pathway – Addiction Recovery Community Housing (ARCH). The new model ensures supported transitions between early recovery housing (including withdrawal management), addiction treatment housing, recovery supportive housing and continuing self-care in the community (Recovery Community Centre). With fewer people falling out of the system at transition points, the ARCH model promises improved outcomes in terms of individuals’ housing, health & wellness, skills & training, employment as well as legal and advocacy goals.
