Peer Recovery Support: Evolving Roles and Settings: A Literature Review

The Peer Recovery CoE is pleased to share Peer Recovery Support: Evolving Roles and Settings: A Literature Review. Peers serve many roles in many settings. There is emerging research that explores the value of using peer recovery support services (PRSS) across these settings. This literature review was put together in an effort to gather all of the information into one place as well as identify gaps in order to make recommendations for the future. In it, you will find an overview of current settings utilizing peer recovery support services, key findings, and recommendations for future study. This information deepens our understanding of the peer roles, job functions, and tasks in a wide range of settings. The research is promising—and there is much more to do to grow PRSS further.
