The Peer to Peer Recovery Program is an outreach program designed to help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process to reduce the likelihood of relapse. The program provides cultural sensitive peer supported services to individuals and family members of those on probation or parole, Veterans, National Guard members, and those referred through the Drug and Veterans Courts.

Services offered include job assistance, employment training, links to medical and mental health services, life skills classes, peer support groups and peer coaching and mentoring. These services are provided by competent staff/peer leaders to ensure participant’s needs are being identified and met through assessment and case management.

Funding for this program is provided by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

If you are in recovery and would like to volunteer as a peer coach, we provide training and guidance. Please complete a volunteer application or call (210) 299-1079 for more information.

All services are free and confidential.
