The purpose of this program is to expand and enhance service capacity through the provision of addiction peer recovery support services for those individuals with substance use disorders. It is the expectation that those with lived experience will play an integral role in the design, development, and implementation of this program. A primary program objective is to help achieve and maintain recovery and to improve the overall quality of life for those being served. This is assessed through increased employment, housing stability, abstinence from substance use, social connectedness, and decreased criminal justice involvement. Many of these issues relate to increased risk for sexual violence.
