Peer Recovery Professionals are role models of recovery values and principles by helping to identify and remove barriers and triggers to treatment for individuals receiving services from inpatient or outpatient programs. They must demonstrate the ability to provide effective services including advocacy, mentoring, education, recovery support, and engage in ethical responsibility. Beyond the application of core competencies, Peer Recovery Professionals must master “essential skills” in order to acquire and maintain employment as peers. This course is designed to promote the development of common, as well as, peer-recovery-focused essential skills.
