Certified Peer Support Specialist
A Certified Peer Support Specialist (CPSS) is a person specializing in support and in-depth experience with those struggling with mental health issues, substance use, or psychological trauma. Similar to Recovery Coaches, they use their “lived experience” to influence and motivate those in the recovery program to work towards a sober lifestyle.. Support and assistance may consist of a “personal wellness plan” for each individual to practice learned techniques and strategies for self-acceptance, self harm reduction techniques, and an overall recovery goal, both mentally and physically. CPSS’s use their advanced training and personal experience(s) to provide you with a solid support system through every stage of recovery.
