Faces & Voices is pleased to release Developing an Accreditation System for Organizations and Programs Providing Peer Recovery Support Services. The concept paper was developed over the last 14 months as we've worked with an Advisory Council that includes recovery community organization (RCO) leaders and allies to develop an accreditation system for organizations and programs providing peer recovery support services.
The objective is to accredit organizations and programs to support the wider purpose of supporting the development of recovery-oriented, community-based institutions and programs where peer services are delivered and a commitment to quality assurance and integrity of those services. An accreditation system will allow organizations and programs to oversee an expanding menu of peer support services and activities, as many already do today, providing a broader array of support to meet the needs of people seeking or in recovery. We would appreciate your thoughts and comments as we move forward.
