Peer-based recovery support services (P-BRSS) and the broader and more distinct arena of recovery coaching are growing exponentially in the United States and other countries. Peers, generally defined as people with lived experience of addiction recovery, are providing a wide variety of support services from initial outreach and engagement to long-term personal/family recovery support and doing so within a growing variety of service settings, including recovery community organizations, harm reduction programs, addiction treatment programs, primary health care facilities, the criminal justice system, and the child welfare system.
