Nevada Recovery Corps
 
 
 
The Nevada Recovery Corps program is a 12-month program designed specifically for people in recovery to serve at host-sites, providing guidance and support to people who are currently struggling with substance use and mental health challenges. Nevada Recovery Corps members are trained Peer Recovery Support Specialists who serve at local organizations to provide community trainings and recovery support services to patrons of Nevada agencies. Nevada Recovery Corps Members expand capacity at the agency they serve by providing local, customized, and one-to-one services that help participants identify and reach their recovery goals and stay supported in their recovery. Using our recovery technology, the agency and Member(s) receive access to key performance metrics and data so their impact can be measured and documented. Nevada Recovery Corps members provide both one-on-one and group-based peer support aimed at setting goals, overcoming barriers, providing resources, and helping create opportunities for those seeking and maintaining long term recovery. They also are responsible for planning and implementing recovery meetings, sober-social events, outreach and trainings, and developing comprehensive recovery services for the communities they serve. It is Foundation for Recovery's belief that their lived-experience provides a unique and empathetic insight which helps them support and guide peers through their individual recovery journey all while helping to build capacity for recovery services within Nevada communities.
