According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA), recovery support services assist people as they enter into and learn to navigate systems of care. These services assist in removing barriers to recovery, help individuals stay engaged in the recovery process, and live full lives in communities of their choice. SAMHSA has now found it efficient and cost-effective to include evidenced-based peer programs, peer services and peer support specialists as a primary tool in the delivery of services in order to reduce escalating cost and lacking resources. One of the greatest barriers to recovery from a substance abuse disorder is immediate access.
