Harry Nelson, managing partner of Nelson Hardiman and founder of BHAP, takes us through the history of residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. The webinar also provides the elements of required licensure, certification and accreditation.

Additionally, it discusses the “Florida Model” trend for bypassing state licensing requirements by setting up sober living residences in lieu of residential drug rehabs. Harry presents the regulatory requirements of outpatient programs as compared with sober living facilities, as well as options for structuring treatment facilities.
