Peer Recovery Center of Excellence Affinity Calls

Certified Peer Specialist (External Link) Visit Site

If you’ve been looking for a space similar (and different) to our monthly Communities of Practice, you may want to check out the “Affinity Calls” hosted by the Peer Recovery Center of Excellence.

The structure for these calls is similar in that they have Affinity Calls for those in peer support roles and another track for those in supervisory roles to peer support workers (what they term Peer Recovery Support Specialists).

Though participation in these calls do not earn you continuing education credit at the current time, they are a valuable resource for deepening conversations, professional development, and networking on a more national scale.
