At Faces & Voices of Recovery, we believe that simply taking a training does not make one competent or skilled in peer support.  Excellent training experiences, on-the-job paid or volunteer experience, competent supervision and continuing education are the key elements of developing a strong and sustainable peer recovery support workforce.  The National Recovery Institute at Faces & Voices of Recovery is available to consult with your organization or agency as you establish the best model of certification for your peers and the people they serve.



Two national organizations have developed and offered credentials to help advance the credibility and integrity of the substance use disorder (SUD) peer workforce.
