In the last ten years, peer recovery support services (PRSS) – distinct from both clinical treatment and mutual aid supports – have become established in the continuum of care for people seeking, stabilizing, and sustaining recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. As these services have been conceived, defined, and developed, organizations have realized that they need to address the most effective ways to ensure the highest quality of care, while keeping intact the values, principles, and contexts that were the underpinnings of their work and that would give integrity and fidelity to peer recovery practice.
