Peer Support Workers are individuals who have been successful in the recovery process for more than two years. Clients who receive peer support, report an overall increase in their quality of life. Peer support has been proven to be an evidence-based practice. Serenity Hills Life Center utilizes Certified Peer Specialists who have lived & experienced substance use and are now trained to help others in need. Some of the tasks performed by the Peer Specialist may include assisting others in articulating their goals for recovery, learning & practicing new skills, helping to monitor their progress, supporting clients in their treatment, modeling effective coping techniques, and teaching self-help strategies. Each client is assigned a Peer Specialist that will continue with them through their treatment and aftercare. They stay engaged until the client meets their goals, or until their support is no longer required.
