OKARR Summit 2022

The Oklahoma Alliance of Recovery Residences is a non-profit organization that certifies sober living homes in Oklahoma. OKARR is hosting its second annual conference this September 19th and 20th in Broken Arrow.

The Summit this year is not only for current and potential providers of recovery residences, but for house managers as well. OKARR will be focusing on building a network of relationships between operators, residents, community providers, and all entities that do work with individuals in the sober living community such as specialty courts, employers, and businesses that contribute to the livelihood of those in sobriety.

The conference will be in person on September 19 and 20, at the beautiful Stoney Creek Convention Center in Broken Arrow.

If you are interested in spotlighting your organization for community engagement by having an exhibitor booth, please email Tara McDonald at tara.mcdonald@okarr.org
