Perspectives on the Evolution and Future of Peer Recovery Support Services

SAMHSA is building on the legacy of the RCSP network and has actively taken several steps to help sustain and expand PRSS models, and the overall recovery community. In 2012, SAMHSA conducted a needs assessment with current and former RCSP grantees, as well as key stakeholder interviews with administrators and officials in the addictions recovery field, to document the successes and challenges of, and lessons learned about PRSS. The insights of RCSP grantees and stakeholders revealed in the needs assessment and interviews provided direction for a 2-day consultation meeting in September 2012. Topics discussed at this meeting are summarized in this document.
