Peer Support Specialists is an integral part of behavioral health treatment. While especially important and effective in the early stages of recovery, peer support is available to help clients at all stages to maintain a healthy life in recovery. Peer Recovery Specialists use a strengths-based approach helping clients find and utilize their values, assets, and strengths while supporting them in achieving success. We recognize that it is normal for everyone to have gaps in their skills or development. The role of the specialist is to help clients recognize and fill these gaps with the skills needed for sustained recovery.
