The MAT Expansion Project has funded the development of supportive housing projects, which provide recovery support services in a residential setting to individuals seeking treatment for opioid use disorder.
In San Francisco, Health Right 360 is providing access to recovery residence transitional housing and peer support for homeless individuals with OUD to facilitate continued engagement in SUD treatment and related recovery support services. In the next iteration of the project, the program will also be available to individuals with stimulant use disorders (i.e., addiction to substances like cocaine and methamphetamine).
Riverside County is also implementing a recovery housing project, with a focus on recovery residences, supportive housing, and treatment services for individuals with an opioid or stimulant use disorder.
New recovery housing programs based in the Northern and Central parts of California will begin in 2021.
