PEERhelp Warmline, Virtual Recovery Meetings, and Certified Peer Recovery Specialist Training

Ballad Health has developed a suite of virtual recovery services, including a phone line and online recovery meetings, to serve people coping with OUD in 29 Appalachian counties in Tennessee and Virginia, where access to treatment is limited. This project will expand access to these services and introduce virtual recovery groups in the region’s jails. It will also strengthen the area’s workforce by creating opportunities for people with lived experience of addiction, including those who are incarcerated, to work toward certification as peer recovery specialists.
