Peer Recovery Supports Services is a person centered, strength-based, and recovery oriented rehabilitative service provided in community settings by a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS) with personal substance use disorder or co-occurring substance use/mental health disorder experience, who has successfully navigated the early recovery process.
Evidence has shown that individuals respond exceptionally well to support from others with personal experience navigating the challenging early recovery period. In combination with invaluable lived experience, the CPRS has received specialized training to offer support and unparalleled assistance to others seeking recovery.
Services provided in both individual and group formats assist the individual to develop and maintain a path to recovery, resiliency, and wellness. Services are designed to promote empowerment, self-determination, understanding, and coping skills through mentoring and service coordination supports, as well as to assist individuals in achieving positive coping mechanisms for the stressors and barriers encountered when recovering from their illness or disorder.
