How it works
Peer-guided care simply means that services are delivered by individuals who share common life experiences with those they serve. The interest in Peer-Guided Care™ in substance abuse treatment has grown substantially over the last few years, because it has been proven to be an effective way for those who are in substance abuse to help others while also helping themselves. Peer mentors understand what clients are going through because they’ve been there themselves. They serve as role models, showing those embarking on their journey that recovery is real. Their very presence enriches years of academic theories about the course of substance abuse treatment. They provide daily proof that those going through treatment can live their lives free of the disease of addiction. Peer mentors have a desire to ‘give back’ while regaining life skills.
SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), recognizes peer support services as an evidence-based practice, based on research that shows the successful outcome of utilizing peer support specialists.
