Who We Are

Meet our Peer-Led Steering Committee

To ensure training, events and the mission of the Peer Recovery Center of Excellence are in line with peer recovery support specialists’ needs and visions for enhancing the field, the Peer Recovery Center of Excellence is guided by a peer-led steering committee made up of experts in the field from across the nation who are also peers in recovery from substance use disorder.

“When designing the Center, having a steering committee of diverse individuals in recovery was a must have component. As a Center focusing on peer recovery, having a peer led steering committee ensures inclusion of the voices of peer recovery support specialists and people in recovery,” said Howton, Director.
