What is Peer Support? Peer Support is an effective tool in addiction recovery. It improves the quality of life; improves whole health, and it improves engagement and satisfaction with services and supports. Peer support has existed in the behavior health field for decades; however, its rapid growth in recent years is due to the increasing evidence supporting its effectiveness, particularly in addiction recovery.
PEER RECOVERY COACHES Recovery Coaches aren’t sponsors or addiction counselors. Instead, they’re people who have lived experience with recovery who provide non-clinical recovery support to their peers.
Recovery Coaches . . . · remove barriers to recovery · connect peers to recovery resources that target their strengths and interests · provide emotional support · focus on the present and future · explore “could” instead of “should” At Lost and Found Recovery Center, this is a free service. Recovery Coaches are available by appointment or at weekly support sessions.
