Bizzell’s Behavioral Health Advancement Resource Center (BHARC) is pleased to share their publication of the latest Behavioral Health Spotlight article, “Peer Recovery Support Services: A Promising Approach to Combat Substance Use Disorders.” This month's article spotlights how peer recovery support services are being used to extend the capacity of health care workers and to offer ongoing treatment of SUDs. The February 2023 Behavioral Health Spotlight, written by K. Ceres Wright, MA; William Scarbrough, PhD; and Jenny Twesten, MPH, reviews the evidence around delivery of peer recovery support services to improve long-term treatment outcomes of SUDs. The Behavioral Health Spotlight, published by BHARC and funded by Bizzell US, is a thought-leadership series highlighting various behavioral health topics that impact communities across the United States and abroad.
