FOR-NY is invested in creating a well-trained and supported peer workforce.

In partnership with the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS), FOR-NY is pleased to be awarding scholarships for training to become a Certified Recovery Peer Advocate (CRPA) and for CRPA Renewal training!

Please note: CRPA services are Medicaid-billable by your employer. Individual (coaching) providers do not bill Medicaid.

These awards will go to individuals who take their training with a Best Practice Trainer.

A limited number of candidates will be approved per region.

Eligibility will be determined by region of the state, financial need, appropriateness/readiness for training and extent of lived experience.

(NOTE: Current residential treatment clients are not eligible.)

Trainer/RCO partnerships will provide training and support utilizing the following best practice model.

“Recovery is real. It’s achievable, sustainable and beautiful.”
