Peer Recovery Specialists
Weitzman ECHO Peer Recovery Specialists is a twice monthly videoconference that connects Peer Recovery Specialists to a community of peers around the country and a panel of subject matter experts. This intervention is designed for those who have lived experience with mental illness, addiction, co-occurring conditions and recovery and who are now supporting their clients with similar life challenges as a professional Peer Recovery Specialist through a health system. The multidisciplinary faculty team includes those with expertise in certified peer recovery specialist training and outreach, nursing and psychiatry. The participants on Peer Recovery Specialists ECHO join from Delaware and regional states.
Throughout the year long educational program, participants are encouraged to present their client cases to the faculty panel and their fellow peers for expert advice as well as listening to planned informative didactics by the faculty to further equip them with the skills to support their clients.
This ECHO program is available for enrollment to Peer Recovery Specialists or similar roles who work through a health system from Delaware and regional states.
