Peer Recovery members are for those who share similar experiences of substance use disorders, mental health diagnosis, or both. As SAMHSA states, "Peer support offers a level of acceptance, understanding, and validation not found in many other professional relationships (Mead & McNeil, 2006). By sharing their own lived experience and practical guidance, peer support workers help people to develop their own goals, create strategies for self-empowerment, and take concrete steps towards building fulfilling, selfdetermined lives for themselves."
