What is the PRC all about?
Anyone who has addiction or mental health issues can come in and talk with our Peer Support Specialists at no cost. Sometimes just being able to talk helps one to sort out how to deal with life on life’s terms. We help those who come in to empower themselves. Support groups and workshops are provided as the need arises where we are able to fulfill those needs.
The PRC plans to grow and change as our community grows and changes, and will always strictly adhere to our policy of free services. Our Mission is sharing hope and caring to help others achieve recovery from addiction/mental health conditions through shared experiences, education, and community networking.
What is a Peer Support Specialist?
Peer Support Specialists are people living in recovery with mental illness and/or substance abuse and who provide support to others who can benefit from their lived experiences. The North Carolina Certified Peer Support Specialist Program provides acknowledgement that the peer has met a set of requirements necessary to provide support to individuals with mental health or substance abuse issues.
