The Recovery Residence Alliance of Montana (RRAM) is a statewide organization and official Montana affiliate of The National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR). We are a network of recovery home operators, community stakeholders, and individuals committed to ensuring safe, supportive, and sober housing for those with substance use disorders.
To champion quality, community-based recovery housing in Montana that advances health, social, and economic well-being while facilitating meaningful, long-term recovery.
RRAM envisions a future where Montana's recovery community thrives, supported by a robust network of certified operators, reliable funding, and shared resources. In this future every resident in recovery homes experiences a supportive, resource-rich environment that fosters resilience and personal growth.
To improve the lives of people in recovery, their families, recovery home operators, and communities across Montana by promoting the widespread recognition that high-quality recovery residences can alleviate health, social, and economic challenges while increasing the probability of achieving lasting, purposeful recovery.
To engage in outreach and education initiatives for individuals, groups, and communities in order to transform the stigma surrounding addiction across the state and ensure fair and equitable treatment for those who identify as "in recovery."
Our impact is rooted in our guiding principles, which prioritize building compassionate and empathetic communities. We employ data-driven approaches to ensure consistent quality and transparency in our efforts. By fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment, we remain focused on the needs of both residents and operators.
Staying connected to national trends and standards, we continuously strive for progress, embracing the lessons learned from our experiences to create a lasting, positive impact on Montana's recovery community.
