What is Peer to Pier?

Peer to Pier’s purpose is to help individuals and families overcome everyday barriers through resources, support and guidance. A peer mentor is someone who can relate to the different situations and barriers one may face in early recovery. All of our peer mentors use experiential knowledge and experiences to help each client in their journey.

Eligibility

Clients eligible for the program:

  • Have an alcohol or drug problem
  • Are not eligible for other case management services
  • Are waiting to enter treatment
  • Have completed treatment
  • Left during the course of treatment
  • Have decided against entering treatment
  • 3rd time DUI participants

What happens once I am referred?

Once a referral has been made, each client will be matched up with a peer mentor. The peer mentor will then contact the client by phone to schedule a meeting. Meetings can happen at our office or out in the community. Meetings will generally be scheduled one time per week but can be adjusted as needed for each client.

At SACK, our Peer Mentors respect your right to find your own recovery. Whether that means through church, 12 step meetings, or other forms of support groups. We also realize that your recovery is dependent on your entire life such as housing, employment, children, legal issues, transportation and many other issues. Our peer mentors will be here to guide and support you in and through each process.
