“The role of a Peer recovery Support Specialist is to use our lived experience to connect with a peer. Once that connection is made we then connect the peer to recovery, staff, treatment and recovery services. I believe that connection is made when we share our stories.” -Eric Jones, CIT, PRSS
Sometimes, we need to be reminded that our past doesn’t define our future. Sometimes, we need someone who’ll just listen, or point us in the right direction for natural and community resources. Someone who’s been down the same hell hole as us …and made it out. Have you completed Peer Recovery Support Specialist Core Training and would like to be paired with a peer? Click here to contact us.
Hello, my name is Eric Jones, and I’m the creator of Writing for the Soul Workshop™. I’ve adapted the program to include peer support. This is not your average writing program. Our focus is not developing better writers, yet some of you who give writing a chance will develop a love for it. When engaged, your Online Journal and this page’s Comment Section becomes a safe haven for you to get what’s on the inside …out. Misspelled words and all.
How was your day?
“When my brain gets cluttered and I start to feel overwhelmed and restless; when I have trouble focusing on today’s tasks because my brain keeps running through a list of all the other things I need to accomplish on other days; when I get grumpy and start to snap at people, I know it’s time for a brain dump. It’s time to declutter my brain so I can think clearly again.” –Stationary Nerd
