Multi-State Recovery Friendly Workplace Community of Practice

The Peer Recovery Center of Excellence (PR CoE) is the first SAMHSA funded technical assistance center dedicated to supporting the growth and development of the Peer Recovery workforce (focused on SUD). The PR CoE provides resources, specialized training, and targeted consultation to individuals, organizations, and communities looking for assistance in building the capacity of the Peer Recovery workforce and Recovery Community Organizations. Join the February Community of Practice to learn more about the center and what it may have to offer your RFW-related efforts. Please see the attached document for our presenter bios.

Additionally, New Hampshire RFW will be speaking to how they’ve leveraged local partnerships to deepen their work with RFWs, including how this work was funded and lessons learned. They welcome CoP members who have leveraged strong partnerships to present as well (more on that below).
There will also of course be time for Q&A.
