The Certified Recovery Residence Administrator (CRRA) credential recognizes professionals who manage residences that offer recovery-oriented support to help individuals with substance use disorders achieve a life in recovery. A Certified Recovery Residence Administrator is the person responsible for the overall management of a recovery residence, plus supervision of residents and paid or volunteer staff. The “grandparenting” phase for this credential has been extended to December 31, 2017. To qualify during grandparenting, candidates must meet established criteria; however, the certification examination is suspended during this period.
