THIS 4-HOUR Ethics class is for RECERTIFICATION ONLY!
There is a long history of peer-based recovery support services within the alcohol and other drug problems arena, and the opening of the twenty-first century is witnessing a rebirth of such services These services are embedded in new social institutions such as recovery advocacy organizations and recovery support centers and in paid and volunteer service roles.
These peer-based recovery support roles go by various titles: recovery coaches, recovery mentors, personal recovery assistants, recovery support specialists, and peer specialists. Complex ethical and legal issues are arising within the performance of these roles, issues for which little guidance can be found within the existing literature. The twin purposes of this training are:
* to train participants (providing peer-based recovery support services) to identify ethical issues arising within the Peer Recovery Support service arena, and
* to offer guidance on how these issues can best be handled.
