Peer-to-peer connection is at the heart of our mission, programs, and services. Sharing our lived experience is key to helping individuals to obtain and sustain long-term recovery.
Peer Recovery Support Services
Our Peer Recovery Coaches have lived experience with addiction and co-occurring mental health issues. They aim to help individuals achieve long-term recovery and maintain overall health and well-being. They accomplish this by assisting individuals in increasing their recovery capital through recovery planning, setting personal life goals, and regular self-evaluation of engagement.
What is recovery capital?
Social Capital: resources an individual has as a result of their support relationships (family, friends, obligations to programs and groups to which they belong)
Physical Capital: tangible assets – home, job, money, all of which can increase recovery stability
Human Capital: skills, positive health, aspirations, hopes, and personal resources that will enable the individual to prosper
Cultural Capital: values, beliefs, and attitudes that link to pro-social behaviors and the ability to be part of a community and a contributor to society
