Office of Peer Recovery and Engagement (OPRE)

The Peer Worker is an integral and highly valued member of the multi-disciplinary team. They provide formalized peer support and practical assistance to people who have or are receiving services to help regain control over their lives in their own unique recovery process. Through wisdom from their own lived experience, they inspire hope and belief that recovery is possible. Through a collaborative peer process, information sharing promotes choice, self-determination and opportunities for the fulfillment of socially valued roles and connection to their communities.
