NJPN is pleased to host a statewide Peer Recovery Support Summit in 2017 in collaboration with the NJ Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services . The Summit will provide the opportunity for peer networking and a forum to highlight best-practices and effective peer models to support NJ’s Peer Recovery Support services in New Jersey.


According to the National Practice Guidelines for Peer Supporters: The peer support workforce is at a critical time in its development. Research reveals that peer support can be valuable to those overcoming mental health and substance addiction challenges and their families. Thousands of peers have been trained and are working in a wide variety of settings, but questions remain regarding peer roles, duties and philosophies. This statement from SAMHSA regarding the National perception of peer support is also true today in New Jersey. The Summit on April 27, 2017 at the Sheraton Atlantic City will be an opportunity for individuals associated with Peer recovery support services to network and learn how peer recovery support is working to save lives in New Jersey.
