CAPRSS Accreditation 101: Introduction to Accreditation

CAPRSS has developed a set of rigorous standards that come directly from the recovery community and reflect current practice in peer recovery support. The standards are the core of the accreditation process.

The CAPRSS Standards can be viewed as an external guide used to assess the capacity and efficiency of a PRSS program, in that programs applying for accreditation will be evaluated on the extent to which they can demonstrate their ability to meet the standards.  But the standards can also be considered a guide that a PRSS program can use to conduct a self-inventory to learn more about areas of excellence and that may need improvement. The second webinar in the accreditation series is designed to give you a deeper understanding of the standards. This session is designed to:

  • Identify the elements of the CAPRSS standards taxonomy and how they relate
  • Describe the core domains and standards
  • Discuss how peer reviewers–and PRSS programs– will use standards, criteria, and elements of performance in the accreditation process.

This session begins at 12:00 ET and lasts 60 minutes, including time for questions.
