2023 Summit Rates

Raise your Voice! Recover OUT LOUD.

We're back! Welcome to the annual NARR Best Practices Summit! This year we're in beautiful Dearborn, Michigan at The Henry Hotel, and we have a whole lineup of amazing speakers ready to share their knowledge with you!

This year's theme, Recovery Out Loud, explores how we can expand access to recovery housing and reduce stigma by sharing our recovery journeys. We look forward to hearing your stories, and how they've guided your advocacy, services, and research in the recovery community. Your story has the power to change the world. 

What you can expect from this year's summit:

  • More networking time, more workshops, and more topics that YOU need to be a recovery housing champion!
  • Guided conversations to learn from your fellow attendees while building strategies to tackle the challenges facing recovery housing across the country.
  • A diverse array of speakers with lived experience across the recovery support services sector.

We believe the knowledge we share is important, as is your safety during this pandemic. We have a flexible cancellation policy, should your situation change. Your safety is our top priority. Please read the Cancellation Policy below or check out our FAQ for additional information.

Get your NADAAC-Approved CEs!

Note: Not all licenses or other credentials will accept NADAAC-approved credits for Continuing Education. You'll need to verify with your licensing body to determine if you can count NARR Summit sessions toward your CE requirements.

Provider #131274

CEs for qualifying sessions will be available to attendees for an additional processing fee of $75. 

The Agenda will note which sessions qualify, and the applicable Counselor Skill Group, so you can find the content and credits you need. You can even build your own schedule with our Session Picker feature during or after registration to plan which presentations to attend! Update your session picks any time by signing in and editing your registration. 

You are responsible for adhering to all requirements and deadlines to receive CEs. NARR does not guarantee CEs for any given session. Full instructions will be provided after registering in lead-up to the event.


By selecting the option to obtain CEs at the 2023 NARR Best Practices Summit, you agree to the following policy:

  1. You agree to pay a processing fee of $75 for the privilege of obtaining CEs. The Cancellation & Refund Policy for general registration will apply.
  2. You are solely responsible for adhering to all requirements and deadlines in order to receive CEs. NARR does not guarantee CEs for any given session.
  3. To obtain CEs you must complete all of the following: 
    • Scan-in with your badge via one of our volunteers for each session. Scans will be taken 15-30 minutes before and within 10 minutes of the start of a session. No scans will be counted towards CE requirements if taken after the 10-minute cutoff. You will receive instructions prior to the summit on how to scan your badge.
    • Complete a Feedback Survey for each session. Surveys will be sent to attendees at the end of each day and must be submitted before October 19th, 2023, to receive credit.
    • Answer 2 out of 3 Knowledge Questions correctly in each session's Feedback Survey. You will be notified immediately by the survey if you failed to answer two or more questions correctly. Any session survey with less than 2 correct answers cannot be counted for CEs. 
  4.  Attendees may only obtain a number of CEs per day equal to the credit-hours attended; you cannot receive credit for sessions happening concurrently. If multiple scans are taken before the 10-minute cutoff, you may still receive credit for the session attended in full as long as you complete its survey. You may only submit one survey per session block. If multiple surveys are submitted for the same timeslot, you will receive no credit for that block. 
  5. It is your responsibility to track which sessions you attend and submit surveys accordingly. We recommend utilizing the Session Picker feature in your registration to plan your summit schedule. To view the Session Picker, finalize your registration, login, and navigate to the Register Page again. A new page will appear in the registration steps. 
  6. You will receive a certificate totaling all credits earned over the course of the 3-day summit no later than November 11, 2023. Included with the certificate will be an Attendance Summary noting which sessions were successfully completed. Use this summary if you require proof of participation for a specific session. Should you need another copy of your certificate, you must submit a request before October 1, 2024. NARR will not resend copies of certificates after this date.
  7. It is your responsibility to contact NARR with any questions or concerns regarding credits within 30 days of receiving your certificate. NARR will review credit-awarding on a case-by-case basis depending upon the nature of the request. No review will be granted if a scan and survey are not on file for the session in question. NARR will not reevaluate credits after December 11, 2023
  8. By opting to receive CEs, you agree to all terms and conditions outlined here and any additional instructions communicated to you prior to the 2023 NARR Summit. You understand that CEs are not guaranteed for any session without the completion of all requirements.

Additional Terms & Conditions

  • Speakers may not obtain CEs for a session they present. 
  • You may not obtain CEs for watching recorded sessions. CEs are only eligible for sessions attended live and in-person.
  • Not all sessions are eligible for CEs based on the nature of the content. The Agenda notes which sessions are CE-eligible. It is your responsibility to note which sessions you wish to attend and whether you can receive credit for them. We recommend using the Session Picker to plan your schedule in advance.
