Certified Peer Recovery Support

Our Peer Support Services are carried out by Certified Peer Recovery Supports. These services are meant to engage people who use substances in community based services. Focusing on the specific needs of each individual rather than a pre-defined set of services, we introduce people to a complete system of care. Our services are no cost to the consumer and are centered around services accessible to everyone regardless of means or financial status. Peers offer social support and act as a navigator of sorts, walking hand in hand through each task that needs to be completed to address the needs of the individual. The goal of these services is to ensure everyone has access to the following:

·         Stable Housing

·         Stable Employment

·         Supportive Recovery Services

·         Access to Healthy Food

·         Medical Care

·         Dental Care

·         Therapeutic Services (when needed)

·         Access to Harm Reduction Services (when needed)

·         Supportive Social Environment

·         Access to Public Transportation

·         Basic Societal Documents (ID, SS Card, Birth Certificate)

·         Other Quality of Life Needs
