As a peer led agency, we recognize that every journey to recovery is unique. Our peer led classes encourage everyone to share their lived experience. We understand that by forming a community of individuals sharing a recovery journey, we offer support, acceptance and understanding. This support enables recovery to flourish and individuals to find the acceptance  they  need to move along their unique path of recovery.

 Our dedicated staff of Peer Support Specialist are trained and certified by OHMHAS. This training includes over 30 hours of class instruction, e-based learning courses and continuing education credits. Each Peer Support Specialist leads classes and spreads the message of hope. They are dedicated to helping increase independence and self esteem.
