WHAT IS PEER SUPPORT?
Peer support encompasses a range of activities and interactions between people who share similar experiences of being diagnosed with substance use disorders (SUD), mental health conditions, or both. The relationship between a peer support worker or recovery mentor and a person in or seeking recovery promotes connection and inspires hope.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM SUD PEER SUPPORT/RECOVERY MENTOR SERVICES?
As a client receiving SUD Peer Support/Recovery Mentor Services, you can expect to build a relationship with someone who understands the difficulties experienced before and during early recovery.
Your SUD Peer Support Specialist/Recovery Mentor will build a trusting relationship with you, meet you ‘where you are at’, and when you are ready, help you identify your personal goals, help you develop a realistic plan for accomplishing those goals, and most importantly, walk with you throughout your journey.
HOW CAN RECOVERY MENTORS OR PEER SUPPORT SPECIALISTS HELP YOU?
We can help you:
- Identify your strengths
- Encourage the use of coping skills
- Establish healthy relationships
- Find Community support and resources
- Listen and advocate without judgement
HARM REDUCTION RESOURCES
Your health is important to us. Harm reduction aims to connect people who use drugs to resources and community partners in order to thrive.
Whether you use drugs, or love someone who does, we will help you get the care and resources you need to be safe and healthy.
WHAT IS AN SUD PEER SUPPORT SPECIALIST OR CERTIFIED RECOVERY MENTOR?
A Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Certified Recovery Mentor, or Peer Support Specialist, is an addict who has been in recovery for at least two years, and has the training and experience to help others become successful through recovery.
We use our own experiences to help you reach your own recovery.
WHY CHOOSE PEER SUPPORT?
- Assistance in reducing barriers to recovery (transportation, basic food, shelter, education, employment, and support meetings)
- Support from someone who has had similar experiences
- Information and referrals to additional community resources
