Pulling from their personal experiences dealing with addiction, peer coaches serve as guides for individuals seeking help for themselves or for a loved one. The innovative approach of Face It TOGETHER provides virtual, phone or in-person sessions for those impacted by addiction.
Face It TOGETHER is a harm reduction-oriented organization and works well alongside traditional treatment options.
Megan Colwell, Director of Community Engagement for Face It TOGETHER, will share the role of peer coaches as well as the value they bring to those in need of addiction care.
• Identify individuals in need of peer coaching services
• Recognize the role of a peer coach within harm reduction
• Explain the value of peer coaching for those impacted by addiction
