MASH is not a licensing authority, nor are we the “Sober Home police”. Our mission is to promote quality recovery housing through provider compliance with the National Standard. Our certification team is comprised of trained administrative & field personnel. Through open and transparent collaboration, MASH personnel guide applicant owners, managers and staff to achieve the Standard.
The duration of the certification process varies significantly based on provider preparedness, motivation and experience. The objective for both parties is to achieve successful certification. Assuming this shared objective, MASH Certification maintains unwavering integrity by ensuring providers continue to demonstrate compliance with the MASH Standards and Code of Ethics
The certification process includes two mandatory parts: Inspection and Training.
Both Inspection and Training must be completed before the house can receive a MASH certification certificate.
