About the Peer Recovery Program at Fairwinds:

 

The Peer Recovery program at Fairwinds – Nantucket’s Counseling Center was introduced in the fall of 2017 in an effort to create a community on Nantucket that supports those in recovery and professionals providing treatment.

Fairwinds currently offers two (2) Peer Recovery coaches – one male, one female.  Our Peer Recovery coaches promote recovery by serving as a guide and mentor for individuals with alcohol and other substance use dependency. Our coaches empower the individual in their personal journey towards recovery by offering hope, while providing advocacy, guidance, support, and knowledge.

While Peer Recovery coaches at Fairwinds do not provide clinical services, they often become a very important member of a person’s recovery support network. Recovery coaches help motivate and encourage recoveries during times of struggle, and may be called on to support individuals when they are experiencing difficult emotional states.
