The purpose of this initiative is to advance the inclusion of peer recovery support services in jurisdictions’ portfolios of substance abuse intervention and treatment strategies. PRSSMI participants are matched to an experienced “mentor site” program that provides consultation and support through virtual learning sessions and an on-site visit. Mentor sites are experienced collaborators with first responders, law enforcement, courts, jails, prisons, and community corrections to help people who abuse opioids to achieve and maintain recovery from addiction.
To learn more about the PRSSMI, including applying to participate, please visit the TTA Center for Peer Recovery Support Services at prss-tta.com. You can also access a COAP Briefing Sheet on the PRSSMI to reference and share.
Peer to Peer opportunities will be displayed as information becomes available. Please check back frequently.
Law enforcement and other first responders are on the front lines of the opioid epidemic. The Law Enforcement/First Responder Diversion and Referral Mentoring Initiative provides communities interested in starting diversion and/or referral programs the opportunity to learn from established programs through on-site observation and peer-to-peer exchanges.
