Welcome to the AARCH website.
AARCH is a network of Recovery Community Residences across the state of New York.
This association was created over 30 years ago to provide advocacy for community residences and to ensure strong representation of our member agencies in Albany. Our association seeks to influence public policy and to keep its members abreast of the many changes that affect our programs.
AARCH also shares technical information to make certain that we are operating within the confines of state regulations. It sponsors a yearly conference to offer quality training on cutting edge topics to staff and administrators alike. Its members communicate regularly via an Internet list serve.
By partnering with other facilities we seek to develop comprehensive solutions to the common problems that are particular to the environment of community residences. We share our experience and best practice ideas to enhance our physical plants, programs and staff.
Always there, always willing to assist, AARCH has been providing advocacy and strong leadership for over 30 years.
Together, we will continue to have a strong voice for community based residential programs.
If you would like to join or have any questions related to our conference, public policy/advocacy or membership please feel free to contact the appropriate committee chair or officers listed on the organizational chart on the “about us” page.
