What is Peer Support?
Peer Recovery Support Services (PRSS) include both ARTS Peer Support and Family Support Partners. These services are non-clinical, peer-to-peer activities that engage, educate, and support an individual’s, and as applicable the caregiver's self-care efforts to improve health, recovery, resiliency and wellness. Embedded PRSS can complement interdisciplinary clinical services and function both in conjunction with or independently of the behavioral health care continuum as a core service. PRSS is available to individuals with either a substance use disorder (SUD) or mental health comorbidities.
