Peer Recovery Team

The Peer Recovery Team provides individual and group peer support within Desert Vista Hospital (Mesa and Phoenix Annex) as well as one-to-one peer support in the community for individuals recently discharged from Desert Vista and the Recovery Innovations Recovery Response Center Peoria.  The Peer Recovery Team focuses on and supports each individual’s recovery/sobriety goals upon transition from the hospital to their own home.  The primary goal of the Peer Recovery Team is to provide support to individuals within their home environment/community so that they do not need to go back to the hospital.


Restart is a short-term transitional living program opportunity designed to support individuals leaving the hospital with nowhere to go.  All Restart referrals are coordinated through Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care (MMIC).  Restart also provides an opportunity for individuals to make further progress with their recovery/sobriety goals.
