Peer Recovery Support Services Program Evaluation

Event Dates

Peer recovery support services (PRSS) are increasingly offered across diverse community, criminal justice, and healthcare settings to address opioid, stimulant, and other substance use disorders. The power and potential of PRSS comes from the unique roles that peers play, promoting both hope and pragmatic steps for change. With a goal of strengthening programmatic outcomes and advocating for greater programmatic implementation, the Bureau of Justice Assistance's Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP) has begun focusing on the evaluation of peer programs.

This session will spotlight BJA COSSAP grantees that are currently collecting data and evaluating their peer programs, as well as some of their preliminary outcomes.

Date Created: March 23, 2022
