This month, we are bringing you another conversation with a few of our organizational stakeholders.
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!
To learn more about us, check out our Who We Are page.
The University of Missouri - Kansas City (UMKC) is the lead organization for the Peer Recovery Center of Excellence, a peer-led national center providing training and technical assistance related to substance use recovery and peer recovery support services.
