Best Practices in Implementing Peer Recovery Support Services in Hospital Settings

Peer recovery support services (PRSS) are increasingly offered across diverse community, criminal justice, and health care settings to address opioid, stimulant, and other substance use disorders. The power and potential of PRSS come from the unique roles that peers play, promoting both hope and pragmatic steps for change. With a goal of strengthening programmatic outcomes and advocating for greater programmatic implementation, BJA's COSSAP has begun focusing on the evaluation of peer programs.

This session will explore the implementation of peer supports within two hospital settings from both an individual hospital and hospital network perspective.
