What is Peer Support?

Peer-based recovery support is the process of giving and receiving non-clinical assistance to achieve long-term recovery from mental health, physical health, substance use and or addiction issues. This support is provided by people who are experientially credentialed and trained to assist others in initiating recovery, maintaining recovery, and enhancing the quality of personal time and family life in long-term recovery. -Montana Peer Network

Definition of a Peer-

Peer is defined as a person of equal standing. In the context of providing Peer Support, the word Peer is used in a broader sense to refer to people who share in common a mutual lived experience. However, in the field of recovery worker education it is necessary to define peer in a stricter sense as someone who is either a co-worker or a person who works in a similar organizational background, or someone of the same generation or cultural background who has suffered the effects of mental illness, substance use and or addiction.
