Understanding the Role of Peer Recovery Coaches in the Addiction Profession

The addiction profession has a strong foundation of peer involvement. In fact, the earliest addiction professionals were the first peer recovery coaches informed by Alcoholics Anonymous. However, recent shifts within the workforce has led to some discomfort and questions about where the newly arising peer recovery coaches will fit into the overall services of the addiction treatment and recovery spectrum. This webinar will provide a comparison between a modern addiction counselor and peer recovery coach in regards to current roles, scope of peer practice, leadership development, ethical considerations and supervision needs. The presenter will also discuss different models of peer recovery supports, including details about how they are delivered, by whom, where, and reimbursement.
