Training Peer Recovery Coaches to Promote Retention and Adherence to Medications for Opioid Use Disorder among Low-Income Adults

Henry Ford Health System, in partnership with the University of Maryland, will be developing a training manual for peer recovery coaches serving low-income, minority communities in Detroit and Baltimore. The manual will guide coaches in providing positive reinforcements and helping those in treatment schedule and engage in valued activities. The investigators will be studying the effectiveness of the intervention and sharing results with policymakers and treatment programs.
