What Is a Peer?

A Peer Recovery Specialist uses lived experience to support individuals with substance use, mental health, or co-occurring disorders. Peers assist with exploring recovery options, advocate, offer insight and assist with resources. They use a strengths-based approach to help participants fill gaps in skills and achieve success through partnership.

About Us/Our Mission

The Minnesota Peer Resource Hub’s mission is to serve Peer’s throughout Minnesota by providing up to date information, education, and career resources. Peers utilize evidence-based information to create beneficial resources and support. Peers work within peer recovery organizations, local substance use centers, mental health services, treatment providers and facilities, and managed care organizations and in many other roles in various settings.

The role of the Minnesota Peer Resource Hub is two-fold:

  1. Support anyone interested in learning more about becoming a Peer, by providing career pathways, and detailed information about the certification process and options, and provide resources to assist you on your journey.
  2. Support anyone with a Peer certification, by providing information and resources for maintaining their certification and growing within their career.
