In this first episode of the year for us, we’ve brought Tim Saubers back to host a conversation around the intersection of harm reduction and peer support: moving beyond abstinence-based models. In December of last year, Tim hosted a similar conversation for his communities of practice series. In this episode, Tim talks with Jose Martinez of the National Harm Reduction Coalition, and Arc Telos Saint Amour and Shayn McDonald both of Youth MOVE National, to get their perspectives on the subject.
The Peer Recovery Center of Excellence (PR CoE) exists to enhance the field of peer recovery support services. Led by those with lived experience, peer voice is at the core of our work and guides our mission. Peers - people in recovery from substance use challenges - serve a valuable role in helping persons with substance use challenges in achieving and maintaining long-term recovery. We are here to offer help from those who have done this work to those wanting to enhance or begin peer support services in their communities!
