What are the benefits of peer support?
“Peers” are people who have lived experience of recovery and have developed the tools and skills for wellness. They are living examples of recovery and, for this reason, are employed throughout Recovery Innovations programs. They are evidence of hope and are a great source of support and encouragement for others. Because of their own experience, they have a unique understanding of the challenges of receiving services and recovery. The staff, inclusive of Peer Recovery Coaches, you will meet have completed extensive training and are skilled in providing recovery education and peer support.
