The Certified Recovery Peer Advocate-Family is a new specialization under the existing CRPA – see this page. It affords existing Certified Recovery Peer Advocates (CRPA) an additional opportunity to offer specialized family peer support. Demand for CRPA-Family is expected to grow as peer expertise in serving eligible families affected by substance use in services delivered in Part 823 Children’s Services. These services consist of formal and informal activities and supports provided to the parent or primary caregiver of families caring for/raising a child who is experiencing social, emotional, medical, developmental, substance use, and/or behavioral challenges in the home, school, placement and/or community. Services may be offered in a variety of settings including community locations, the home where the child lives, works, attends school, engages in services and/or socializes. The specialized expertise of the CRPA-F is expected to address a critical need in those agencies that serve families impacted by substance use disorders and want to enhance their service outcomes through peer-supported, long-term recovery
