Peer Support

Peer Support is defined as “someone who has experienced the healing process of recovery from psychiatric, traumatic, and/or substance abuse challenges and as a result, can offer assistance and support to promote another peer’s own personal recovery journey.”

Clayton employs Certified Recovery Support Specialists [Peer Support Specialists] to work with consumers individually and in groups to develop hope for recovery, increase problem-solving skills, develop natural support networks, and participate fully in activities of their choice. This can be as simple as going for a walk in the neighborhood, starting a conversation about interests and resources, or providing a welcome basket at admission.
