Peer Support

What is Peer Support and who is it for?

Peer support is created through a trusting, equal and empowering recovery-oriented relationship between two individuals who share a similar experience. This service works with individuals to support their recovery socially, emotionally and practically to empower them in their day-to-day lives.

With the belief that human connection can serve as one of the most powerful tools in recovery and healing, this support service also embodies a mutual understanding of expectations, self-empowerment, self-awareness and accountability. Grounded in self-determination, hope for the future, and a holistic approach to wellness,

Peer Support is free from judgement, as together, we will navigate your individual journey of healing. Peer support is not about focusing on the illness or disability but instead works with your ability to make conscious choices about how you choose to better your whole health and mental wellness.

If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health recovery and or addiction challenges, please connect with us directly at or call 705-726-5033.
