What We Value
Integrity, Human Well Being, Quality, Community, Respect, Excellence
Our Peer Support Specialist is a person who has progressed in their own recovery from alcohol or other drug abuse or mental disorder and is willing to self-identify as a peer and work to assist other individuals with chemical dependency or a mental disorder. Because of their life experience, such persons have the expertise needed to help each client reach their goals. One Community Behavioral Services Peer Support Staff have experience with assisting their peers in articulating their goals for recovery, learning and practicing new skills, helping them monitor their progress, assisting them in their treatment, modeling effective coping techniques and self-help strategies based on the specialist’s own recovery experience, and supporting them in advocating for themselves to obtain effective services.
One Community Behavioral Services only hires trained Certified Peer Support Specialists who understands that Recovery Plans can take many forms. A key component of the recovery management model is a personal recovery plan. This plan is drawn up by the individual looking for support, and reviewed with a team of clinical professionals. This peer-centered recovery plan is instrumental for individuals to “buy into” the process of their own recovery in order to become more productive within their communities.
