Trans-affirming recovery sets a national standard in West Philadelphia's Morris Home

Morris House is the only recovery program in the country that requires people identify as transgender or gender conforming before they enter the program. “About 90 percent of residents saw a decrease in substance use from the month prior to treatment to the last month of their rehabilitation. Additionally, 83 percent of residents received medical treatment, including preventative HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C care, and an additional 89 percent transitioned from use of street-grade unregulated hormones to medical-grade hormone treatment.”
