PEER RECOVERY SERVICES
Tackling the real world barriers to recovery from Substance Use Disorder
What Are Peer Recovery Services?
Peer recovery services are critical support resources that individuals in recovery can utilize continuously, increasing their overall success in recovery. Peer recovery services are administered by trained professionals called Certified Peer Recovery Specialists (CPRSs). Unlike the clinical services delivered in many treatment centers, peer services provide social support and help to remove the more practical barriers standing between an individual and long-term recovery. Some examples of peer recovery services can be found below.
