Transitioning to a Professional Role as a Person with Lived Experience

The JEAP Initiative is a project funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse that aims to advance research on recovery support services, especially for young adults and adults with criminal legal system involvement. They created this tipsheet that answers the question, "How can an individual with lived experience (in recovery and/or with the criminal legal system) successfully transition into a professional role?" Within the document are 6 key components of successfully transitioning into a professional role.
