The Senate passed a bill on Wednesday that would add additional state oversight to recovery residences and hold these vital tools in the recovery process to a higher standard.
Senate Bill 475 would introduce stricter certification standards for recovery residences in West Virginia. The bill would prohibit recovery residences that lack a valid certificate of compliance with state standards from accepting patient referrals. The legislation would also require recovery residences to register with the state, creating an easily accessible repository of information about recovery facilities in the West Virginia.
The bill now moves on for consideration in the House of Delegates.
