Free Training, Every Week

Yes - you heard that right! We are ruthlessly committed to increasing access to recovery services and understand that the shortage of qualified professionals who can help is a massive barrier. To address this, Refocus Recovery offers accredited training to become a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist at NO COST.


Do you have at least one year of personal sustained recovery? While it's not required for training, you must have 1+ years of personal sustained recovery to become certified.

Hear Their Stories

After I got out of treatment I wasn’t even sure what I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to help people. I found my way to Refocus Recovery and found that instead of helping 20 people, by being a CPRS Trainer I could help 20 people help 100 people.
