This workshop presents a history of peer services in Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) programs and the significance for treatment. Prejudice has become a primary social force that patients must overcome. For quality methadone and buprenorphine treatment to flourish it is necessary to reduce this negative influence. Peer services provide a positive force in the lives of MAT patients providing socialization, information, advocacy and improving self-esteem. This workshop provides basic information to begin Peer Recovery Services and expanding services that already exist.

Learning Objectives:

  • Upon completion participants will understand the history of peer services and the significance it provides for treatment.
  • Upon completion participation participants will have knowledge of the basics to develop peer services.
  • Discuss ideas for developing peer services, i.e. educational groups, events, day to day activities.
