Don’t Struggle in Isolation
Peer Specialists have been trained to support those who struggle with things they’ve personally experienced, including substance abuse, mental illness, and trauma. These individuals share tools, skills, and resources that have helped them transform their lives out of similar situations. Their personal experiences with these challenges provide them with expertise that professional training cannot replicate.
Our Peers participate in close to a dozen of our programs focused on things ranging from substance abuse to suicidal ideation to vocational support and beyond. Peer Support means you’re walking alongside someone who has grown beyond challenges similar to your own.
We currently have Peers embedded within the following programs providing support:
- Substance Use Disorder Intensive Outpatient programs (SUD IOP)
- Outpatient programs
- Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
- Community Dual Disorders Treatment (CDDT)
- Harvest Farm
- Murphy Center
- Mountain Crest Behavioral Health Center
- Zero Suicide Pathway (Caring Contacts)
- A Peer Run Aftercare program for SUD IOP graduates
- AIIM and Wellness Court programs
- Choices Café
