“The Recovery Support Navigator program has been a God send for me.
I met my peer advocate while inpatient at SBH detox facility on University Avenue. The peer support has assisted and helped me navigate my legal court proceedings. Having peer advocacy representation in the court room gave me security and confidence that I would be ok no matter what. I wasn’t alone during a very difficult and challenging situation and time in my recovery process. Due to my positive experience with peer support services, I recommend the Recovery Support Navigator program to others who are battling with addiction and loss as a result of their illness.”

The Peer Advocate, who is knowledgeable about the alcohol and substance abuse treatment system, will work with local hospital Emergency Department personnel and in other settings to help patients establish connections to addiction treatment after an opioid overdose reversal, after discharge from another addiction-related ED visit, or as needed in other settings. This connection to treatment after an opioid overdose reversal is critical to a person’s start on the path to recovery, and can help prevent relapse and a potential overdose reoccurrence.
