People in Addiction Recovery to Get Housing Help in Supervisor Lawson-Remer's District

News Date

More people in the coastal region, and throughout San Diego County will receive the housing support they need because Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer and her colleagues on the Board of Supervisors voted today to expand recovery housing for homeless individuals enrolled in County addiction recovery programs.      

“With the action we took to allocate more funds, nearly 2,000 people will be able to be connected to recovery housing,  in addition to their addiction treatment,” said Supervisor Lawson-Remer, Vice Chair, San Diego County Board of Supervisors. “Our County over the last three years has accelerated its commitment to help the unhoused get the care they need and get into a better situation.” 

According to the Policy, recovery housing plays “a vital role in the recovery process, especially for individuals who may not have a stable home environment conducive to maintaining sobriety.” Recovery housing provides “a space where individuals can focus on rebuilding their lives, learning essential life skills, and establishing a foundation for a healthy and sustainable recovery journey.”
