Peer Recovery Support in Ohio

Peer recovery support

This Weitzman ECHO is a continuing education series and learning community for Peer Supporters in rural Ohio. In collaboration with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, this free 8-month program was designed with Peer Supporters and providers who regularly work with Peer Supporters to treat substance use disorders. The series meets twice monthly to connect Peer Supporters from rural areas with one another; engage Peer Supporters in discussions about workplace challenges and issues working with peers to identify practical solutions; and learn about high-value topics from experienced faculty.

Thank you for your interest in our program. Enrollment for the 2024 series is now open to Peer Supporters working in rural areas of Ohio. To learn more or register, please go to the Weitzman ECHO Peer Recovery Support in Ohio webpage.

Peer Recovery Support ECHO for Ohio is being offered as part of the HRSA’s Rural Communities Opioid Response Program to improve rural health outcomes.
