Exploring Peer Recovery Coaches

July 13, 2021

As people with lived experience of addiction and recovery, peer recovery coaches (PRCs) are often the lynchpin to engaging people in opioid use disorder treatment and helping them rebuild their lives. FORE is engaged in efforts to explore the unique challenges and experiences of PRCs across the United States so that a strong, effective workforce is developed. Hearing directly from PRCs about the supports and training they need to reach their highest potential and have a positive impact on people in treatment and recovery should be a critical component of developing policies to expand this workforce.
