A Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS) is an individual whose role it is to provide support and reassurance in recovery. They are non-clinical. These individuals are established in their own recovery to help, alongside, the individual to find resources, offer an empathetic ear, and help reduce harm from disordered use. Sage Prairie has incorporated this care into all levels of programming. If needed, a patient can be referred to local Recovery Community Organizations to meet needs not offered by the CPRS’s employed by sage prairie (culturally specific needs, alternative approaches, etc.).
