Peer Recovery Support Services / Peer Support Sessions

1-on-1 Support Sessions

Supporting NJ’s Peer Workforce

Are you a NJ Peer Recovery Specialist currently working to support others to find their path to recovery and find that you are lacking the time for self-care?

Working in the helping profession can be very rewarding, but can also be emotionally draining. As a consequence, many individuals these days are feeling overwhelmed and stressed—you are not alone. It is important to be gentle with yourself and others, and to take steps to support both your own and your family’s emotional well-being.

Individual Support Sessions are Now Available

Every Monday and Thursday

Virtual Support Sessions on Zoom

Now, more than ever is the time to take preventative action steps to protect the most important therapeutic tool: yourself. Do you want to learn new techniques and strategies that will support your emotional health and wellness? This is the place for you. You are invited to connect, recharge and balance your emotional health. Sign up today and take the first step in caring for yourself. 

We invite you to strength your support network by scheduling a 1-on-1 private support session. All are welcome no matter your pathway to recovery.

What to Expect

Similar to an in-person meeting, the goals of these 30-minute virtual 1-on-1 sessions are to discuss some of life's challenges and find new ways to assist in the promotion of your self-care, health and wellness.

 

These support sessions are designed for NJ Peers currently working or volunteering in multiple supportive settings. Experience level does not matter—all are welcome to book an individual support session!

Guidelines on Participation

Please be respectful of your facilitator just as you would in any other meeting or recovery space—they're here to help!

Audio can be muted when you are not contributing to the conversation. Text chat option is also available.

If you wish to remain anonymous you may do so by calling in verses using video capabilities.

Attending from a laptop maximizes the Zoom operability but you can also join via a smart phone. Video is optional.

Help With Zoom

Our 1-on-1 support sessions are hosted on Zoom, a free video conferencing platform that can be accessed via a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet connection or through audio by phone. Learn more about how to use Zoom via the links below.
