  • Present models of peer recovery support from community health and public health settings.
  • Explore the commonalities and differences between the philosophies, purposes, and tasks of community health workers and peer recovery support specialists.
  • Describe how programs can use the strengths of each model to better serve people who have been arrested, adjudicated, incarcerated, and/or released from incarceration.
