The Certified Peer Specialist Supervisor engages and encourages peers in recovery. They provide support, supervision, and oversight of Certified Peer Support Specialists. The Peer Specialist Supervisor will function as a role model to peers by demonstrating competency in personal recovery and the use of coping/recovery skills. The goal is to promote engagement, self-direction, and recovery skills so the peers can gain independent mastery over their own recovery. The Peer Specialist Supervisor works with peers as equals who are a diverse group of high-risk, high-need, justice-involved individuals. This position requires that the applicant have a history of a diagnosed substance use disorder and be willing to share their recovery story.
This is not a general case management or social work position. It is specifically for individuals who have or are seeking Peer Specialist certification, have a history of diagnosed mental health and/or SUD needs, and are willing to openly share their recovery story. You must understand and articulate the role and duties of a Peer Specialist.
