What is a Peer Recovery Coach?

The Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR) defines a peer recovery coach as someone who, "promotes recovery and removes barriers and obstacles to recovery, serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking or already in recovery from an addiction to alcohol and or other drugs."

Recovery United Community Center peer recovery coaches (PRC) are trained to the highest standard of evidenced based practices in the peer recovery field. Peer recovery coaches are in long-term recovery and working towards or have attained a certification in peer recovery services. Peers have lived experience that allows them to effectively navigate treatment systems and pathways to achieve sustained recovery. Individuals who have identified that their substance use causes problems in any area of life can work with a peer to find a pathway of recovery that works for them based on their personal definition of recovery.
