Peer Recovery Support 101

A Manual of Peer Recovery Support Basics: from Ohio Mental Health & Addictions Services

Peer recovery services (PRS) are community-based services for individuals with a mental illness or substance use disorder, and consist of activities that promote recovery, self-determination, self-advocacy, well-being, and independence. Peer recovery services are individualized, recovery-focused, and based on a relationship that supports a person’s ability to promote their own recovery. Peer recovery services promote self-directed recovery by assisting an individual and promoting trauma-informed care and diversity competence, encouraging self-direction, and advocating for informed choice.
