What is Peer-Based Recovery Support?
Peer recovery support refers to a process in which individuals who have been impacted by substance use provide non-professional, non-clinical assistance to one another. This assistance is aimed at achieving and maintaining long-term recovery. Peer recovery support is based on the concept that people who have gone through similar experiences are uniquely qualified to offer practical and emotional support to others who are in similar situations.
Providing Individual Support – Certified Peer Recovery Specialists
A Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS) is someone with personal experience in recovery who has been trained to help others seeking to start or maintain recovery. A CPRS helps individuals navigate through obstacles and works to remove barriers to recovery by serving as a personal guide. A CPRS works to help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the likelihood of relapse. Peer recovery support services can effectively extend the reach of treatment beyond the clinical setting into the everyday environment of those seeking a successful, sustained recovery process.
