Learn About Peer Recovery Support Services to Address Opioid Abuse

Join the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP) team for the webinar “Unlock the Power of Peers: Strategies for Response, Rehabilitation, Reentry, and Recovery Support” on Thursday, September 27 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. ET. During this webinar, participants will learn how peer recovery support services (PRSS) are vital in helping address opioid abuse and achieve positive outcomes in diverse criminal justice settings.

The webinar will focus on the power and potential of PRSS, which stem from the unique roles that peers play in promoting both hope and pragmatic steps for change. This webinar will cover topics on how to:

  • Identify common values that build the foundation for PRSS, regardless of the setting;
  • Define the variety of roles that peers play across sequential intercepts and settings;
  • Outline core elements of successful PRSS programs at different intercepts; and
  • Describe training and supervision approaches to better prepare peers to carry out their roles.

COAP is proud to feature this webinar in September as part of its spotlight on National Recovery Month and to show wholehearted support for those beginning or continuing their personal recovery journeys.

Register for the webinar today.
