Peer Recovery Training and Support

Through funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Altarum is working with a broad cross-section of community-based organizations to integrate peer recovery support services into a variety of criminal justice programs and settings. Strong social supports, including peers who have personally experienced addiction and recovery, can improve outcomes for those struggling with substance use disorders. Altarum works closely with organizations at the state and local level to integrate and deliver peer recovery support services across and throughout the criminal justice system, from developing peer training and supervision materials to devising strategies for partnerships to ensure comprehensive recovery supports are available in communities and counties, and throughout states.
