Peer recovery coaches are people with lived experience in addiction who have been in recovery for at least two years. They walk side by side with individuals seeking recovery from substance use disorders. They help people to create their own recovery plans, and develop their own recovery pathways.
The unique relationship between the peer recovery coach and the individual in or seeking recovery is grounded in trust, and focused on providing the individual with tools, resources, and support to achieve long-term recovery. Find a local coach in the PDF below.
