Register to participate in Public Health Peer Support Models, a BJA-supported webinar taking place August 26, 2020, at 1 p.m. ET.
Peer recovery support services are increasingly offered across diverse criminal justice settings to address opioid and other substance misuse, and to achieve positive outcomes. This session will:
- 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.
