PEER RECOVERY
SUPPORT SERVICES

The strong Peer network throughout NJ is supported by the tireless efforts of peer workers who have been successful in the recovery process and help others navigate their own path to wellness.

WHAT IS
PEER
RECOVERY
SUPPORT? 

Through shared understanding, respect, and empowerment, peer support workers help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the likelihood of relapse. NJPN offers training for peer workers in DMHAS peer programs. Not all positions require formal certification, but there are two peer certifications supported by the NJ DMHAS for peer workers interested in NJ or National peer credential.
