SPARK Technical Assistance Series

SPARK Technical Assistance Series

The SAMHSA Program to Advance Recovery Knowledge (SPARK) is excited to announce an upcoming technical assistance (TA) opportunity in Ohio. The TA will focus on operationalizing equity and cultural responsiveness in recovery residences, with a primary focus on creating inclusive and affirming recovery residences.   


This TA will be comprised of four sessions on August 1st, August 8th, August 15th and August 22nd. These sessions will be conducted virtually, via Zoom, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The sessions will center the discussion around the social model of recovery housing, and support participants to understand and incorporate cultural responsiveness across a range of issues – from understanding relevant definitions of equity and inclusion to operational strategies to assess and address equity gaps at the residence level.  


SPARK is a national TA center to support transformational, recovery-oriented change for every state, tribal, and territorial behavioral health system and promote equitable access to recovery supports in the United States. SPARK is supported by SAMHSA’s Office of Recovery and the Center for Substance Abuse treatment.    


SPARK is collaborating with Ohio Recovery Housing (ORH) on this TA opportunity.
