Dear Industry: The subject of halfway houses is a complex one. We'd suggest a good lawyer to create a checklist for you as to halfway house regulations. The following URLs re pertinent to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania regulations for halfway houses. There are certainly Philadelphia city regulations as well which I have been unable to find on the internet. The following law firm does work with halfway house regulation and licensing: http://www.hangley.com/prac_gove.htm "As we enter the 2000s, there is even greater pressure on governments to find and exploit opportunities to improve their financial condition by developing revenue generation and cost saving initiatives. Members of the Governmental Practice Group have had significant experience inside and outside government in identifying and implementing such initiatives. They can be a valuable resource to governments that need to confront change in the traditional manner of operations." http://www.pabulletin.com/secure/data/vol26/26-5/26_5_p2.pdf http://www.pabulletin.com/secure/data/vol26/26-5/171.html "RULES AND REGULATIONS, Title 28--HEALTH AND SAFETY, DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, [28 PA. CODE CHS. 701 AND 704], Staffing for Drug and Alcohol Treatment Activities" The above listed references , detail Commonwealth of Pennsylvania regulations regarding staffing at halfway houses. http://www.paproviders.org/index.html The above URL provides information on a "provider group" which is a basic organization that can supply more practical experience to individuals or groups who are starting or operating halfway houses. You need to be a member to get the benefit of their various reports. http://www.cga.state.ct.us/2002/olrdata/hs/rpt/2002-R-0436.htm http://www.state.ma.us/dph/bsas/Documents/Forms/revised.appln.pdf http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-278.html#NRS278Sec021 The above URLs provide general information from states other than Pennsylvania. The detail you require cannot be found easily on the internet and further searching is outside the cost parameters of your question. If I can clarify any of the information I have provided, please don't hesitate to ask before you rate this answer.
