Peer recovery services are social support systems for people recovering from a substance use disorder. They include people with experiences similar to your own, meeting your need to be with people you can relate to.
Unlike group therapy, peer recovery services are nonclinical, which means these sessions are run by regular people in recovery who wish to help others by sharing their experiences.
These peers have practical, hands-on experience with the treatment process for recovery and what it takes to maintain it.
Victory Recovery Partners takes a whole-person approach to addiction and recovery, providing services that nourish your physical, emotional, psychological, and social well-being.
Peer recovery services aren’t meant to replace your behavioral health therapy or medication-assisted treatment (MAT) but support your overall recovery, potentially preventing a relapse.
You may benefit from peer recovery services to support your opioid, alcohol, or cocaine addiction. Treatment at Victory Recovery Partners is customized based on your personal needs.
During your initial visit, you meet with your dedicated recovery partner. Your recovery partner is your case manager who has training in addiction and addiction treatment. They determine what treatments and therapies best fit you and your health needs, which may include peer recovery services.
Peer recovery services offer many benefits to support your addiction treatment and long-term recovery. These benefits include:
Peer recovery services focus on “keeping recovery first.” That means these peer groups meet you where you are in your recovery process, guiding you through your treatment, and providing the support and encouragement you need along the way.
Victory Recovery Partners recommends peer recovery services because they reduce your risk of relapse and improve your compliance with your treatment plan.
Peer recovery services may also include support groups for your family.
When it comes to addiction, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. For individualized care from a practice that offers many services to support your road to recovery, call Victory Recovery Partners or schedule an appointment online today.
