Peer Recovery Coaches (PRC) are individuals in long term recovery, that provide recovery support services. PRC’s work with individuals with substance-use and mental-health disorders. Our Coaches meet individuals exactly where they are in their recovery. PRC’s support participants in setting and achieving goals by working with their recovery capital.
