Peer Support

Maintaining sobriety is one of the most difficult things that anyone can do; we manage peer support services to help our client’s push through the worst of times. Peer support is clinically proven to increase success in sobriety by building a strong network of support that our clients can draw from in their hardest times. 

Engaging With Peers, Not Counselors

Initiate and navigate the complexities of recovery, build relationships to help make it through recovery without relapse, interact and learn with peers through interactive discussion and activities, build a successful home environment and learn to handle the stressors of parenting.

We offer several FREE peer support options to help our client’s in their transition through the maintenance phase of recovery.
