The Peer Recovery Center of Excellence is excited to share this series of explainer videos on topics that are foundational to the recovery community; Recovery Community Organizations, Peer Support, Recovery Capital, and Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care. These concepts are familiar to the recovery community, but difficult to convey to the general, broader population in a succinct way. We are grateful to the PR CoE steering committee and peers partners for their input and support in the development of this series.
We hope that you use these videos to communicate core elements of your services, messaging, and marketing. They are a free resource, and do not require permission to use them; embed them in a presentation, in your newsletter, on your website, on your social media or email them directly to your audience. Our hope is to create dialogue on all these very important elements of the recovery community.
Peer Recovery Support is a service that occurs when people with shared lived experience connect with each other to foster growth and recovery.
Recovery capital refers to the total internal and external resources a person can access to initiate and maintain recovery.
Recovery community organizations (RCOs) make addiction recovery visible and accessible.
A recovery-oriented system of care is a range of personalized supports used to treat substance use disorders that work together to foster healthy growth and a meaningful life.
