We are seeing a surging peer recovery movement in North Carolina. Peers are joining teams in a broad variety of health settings: Hospital ED’s, Community Mental Health, ACT Teams, SUD Inpatient & Outpatient, pre-arrest diversion programs, and post-overdose engagement to name a few.
Our Spring Conference in Asheville will feature a timely innovation, the Peer Recovery Track. Peers will have the option of attending amazing breakout sessions on peer supervision, ethical considerations, recovery technology, self-care, and medication assisted recovery.
At APNC, we believe that peer recovery support services are a crucial component of recovery oriented systems of care. We are dedicated to ensuring peers receive the respect and maintain the credibility they deserve.
To that end, we appealed to our national organization NAADAC to create a membership category for peer professionals. They thought it was a great idea. You’ve always been able to join under our Associate category, but soon, NC Certified Peer Support Specialists or those in the process of certification can join APNC under their own category and receive all the specialized benefits of membership that your fellow professionals receive:
- Real time information on what’s trending in the peer recovery field
- Education on innovative and evidence based peer recovery practice
- Robust networking opportunities with peers throughout the state
- A stronger voice at the advocacy table, ensuring the sustainability of peer services
- Join a movement that is part of the solution
