At Peer Recovery Resources we are peers in active recovery using our lived experiences to connect our community through education, hope, and empowerment.
We are here to help you, just reach out to us.
Welcome To Peer Recovery Resources
We serve those with mental health and/or substance use challenges as well as their loved ones and advocates by providing peer support. Peer Support is a structured relationship where a trained peer worker or volunteer, who has gone through a personal process of recovery with a mental health and/or substance use challenge, assists other people with mental health and/or substance use challenges to identify and achieve life goals.
Board Members, Johnny Puckett and Mary Ann Furniss were honored recently to receive a special Civitan Grant to help further our important work.
We provide support to all individuals with mental health and or substance use challenges–regardless of faith, creed, race, ethnicity, religion, political affiliation, gender identity/sexual orientation, or disability.
Our Peer Support Specialists teach classes in wellness recovery topics and provide one-on-one peer mentoring to individuals. We listen to each person’s story, share the skills we have learned through our lived experiences, and help direct people to resources in their community.
We offer help to all individuals. Some of the populations we currently serve include older adults, individuals facing homelessness and/or poverty, veterans, businesses, organizations, and the general public. Primarily, we teach residents at the following outreach sites: Glover Plaza, James Walker, and Haven Ministries.
