Peer Recovery Support
in the COVID-19 Pandemic

People in recovery have overcome much adversity so in many ways they are uniquely prepared mentally and emotionally to cope with the difficulties they are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.  However, what they are not used to in recovery is isolation and social distancing.

The Recovery Data Platform (RDP) is a cloud-based software solution developed and managed by Faces & Voices of Recovery. RDP aids RCOs and Peer Service Providers with the tools and assessments needed to effectively implement, document, and evaluate peer recovery coaching programs.

In Q1 2020, our team worked diligently on finishing up the initial version of the Recovery Data Platform (RDP) companion mobile app. The app enables participants to access their own recovery data and engage with their RCO. The best news? This will be included automatically in your platform.  As the demand for this new product is heavy, we will be scheduling deployments over the next few months. A team member will reach out to your organization by June 1, to discuss implementation.
