What is Recovery?
Living in recovery with a behavioral health condition doesn’t mean that the condition disappears, nor does it mean the same thing as treatment. Treatment includes therapy, medication, and other clinical resources meant to help an individual reach stability. Recovery, however, is the process of achieving and maintaining a level of self-defined wellness through the use of personal recovery tools. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), there are four components to stable recovery: (1) Health, (2) Home, (3) Purpose, and (4) Community.
We provide evidence-based recovery education to people who want to improve their wellness. We also train people to enter the Peer Support Professional workforce or to become advocates so that they can continue spreading the message of recovery to others.

Peer Support Professional Certification
Training to become a Peer Support Professional or Peer Support Coach means transforming your lived experience into valuable tools to help others reach recovery. Who better to learn peer support principles from than peers themselves? Our 72-hour curriculum is comprehensive, robust, and in-depth, originally developed with support from the National Association of Peer Supporters (N.A.P.S.)
Peer Pathways to Wellness
Our trailblazing direct peer support service is designed to bring our communities a range of services and support. We serve anyone with lived experience of mental health, substance use, trauma, and/or co-occurring conditions and support peers who are unhoused. We practice peer support at select locations across Denver Metro, without clinicians onsite.
