Speak out to your federal representatives and say:
I'm contacting you about Sober Living Homes. Long-term, residential neighborhoods are essential to the health, fabric and safety of our communities. Recovery Residences are businesses, compensated through health insurance funding. The combined Fair Housing Act and ADA have been misconstrued to entitle recovery businesses to operate transient housing in zones set aside for permanent ownership and residency when transient housing is not an accommodation needed or even desirable for addiction recovery. The Fair Housing Act must be amended to clarify that cities may relegate transient housing to neighborhoods designated for such. In addition, federal law must ensure the safety of recovering addicts and their neighbors across the country. Please support all legislation that clearly defines and penalizes false advertising, patient brokering, insurance fraud, kickbacks and under-the-table dealings in the residential rehabilitation industry.
