Peer recovery support

Peer recovery support is social support and wellness recovery planning offered by a person with lived experience, who supports and guides another person to achieve, sustain, or enhance their own recovery.

Social support can include:

  • Emotional Support: person-centered mentoring to bolster confidence and self-esteem
  • Informational Support: knowledge and information and/or skills training
  • Instrumental Support: help accomplish tasks such as accessing services
  • Affiliational Support: connections with people in recovery to create a sense of belonging

Recovery wellness planning determines:

  • Goals: a person’s needs, hopes, wishes, and dreams
  • Challenges: the obstacles, barriers, and stigma of addiction
  • Strengths: the assets, relationships, and recovery capital to leverage and enhance recovery
  • Plans: the action steps to overcome challenges and achieve goals

Peer Recovery Coaches guide a person to work towards his or her goals but do not work on a specific program or therapy. They are not sponsors, caseworkers, or clinicians. They are peers who have been there and can help a client establish and maintain a foundation to be successful.

SIMS is not a 24-Hour crisis line. If you are in crisis, please call 512-472-HELP or 911.
