Certified Peer Recovery Specialist training offered in May

To assist families grappling with the addiction of a loved one, NJ Connect for Recovery, a free, confidential call line for addiction and recovery support, teamed up with Robert Meyers, Ph.D., co-author of CRAFT, an evidence-based intervention program geared toward families of substance abusers, to host a three-day family training June 5-7 in the Monmouth Junction section of South Brunswick. The training, which hosted more than 40 attendees including family members, NJ Connect for Recovery staff, and other leading addiction service providers, learned evidence-based practices and new strategies to help families identify how they can play a powerful role in helping engage a loved one in addiction treatment. The hotline is 855-652-3737.

The Center for Addiction & Recovery Education & Success (CARES) through a Prevention is Key (PIK) special project will offer Certified Peer Recovery Specialist Training virtually starting May 9. Times are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays and 5-9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Learn how to offer your lived experience to provide peer recovery support to individuals and family members touched by addiction.
