The Peer Recovery Center of Excellence (PR CoE) recently received SAMHSA funding to provide training and technical assistance to support Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) grantees with integrating peer recovery support services into their existing HIV prevention and treatment approaches. In order to address these needs, the project:
- Solicits input from grantees and key stakeholders;
- Provides proactive training and technical assistance;
- Responds to requests for customized TA from individual MAI grantees.
The Peer Recovery CoE works with a peer-led steering committee to address four primary focus areas: Clinical Integration of Peers into Non-Traditional Settings, Recovery Community Organization Capacity Building, Peer Workforce Development, and Evidence-Based Practice & Practice-Based Evidence Dissemination. Training and events center around these focal points. You can find more information by clicking on the following links:
