Public Health Peer Support Models (Webinar)

Event Dates
Peer recovery support services (PRSS) are increasingly offered across diverse criminal justice settings to address opioid and other substance misuse, and to achieve positive outcomes.

The power and potential of PRSS comes from the unique roles that peers play, promoting both hope and pragmatic steps for change.

This session will:

- Present models of peer recovery support from community health and public health settings.
Explore the commonalities and differences between the philosophies, purposes, and tasks of community health workers and peer recovery support specialists.

- Describe how programs can use the strengths of each model to better serve people who have been arrested, adjudicated, incarcerated, and/or released from incarceration.
