There is a strong tradition of peer support in the drug and alcohol field. The people involved go by various names – recovery champions, buddies, peer mentors and more – but the gist remains the same: that people themselves in recovery from drug and alcohol use can be authentic and effective voices in supporting others along their own journeys.

This toolkit brings together information for peer supporters and their managers.
