We know that the isolation that comes from sheltering in place can negatively affect those in recovery, many of whom depend on group meetings and other recovery supports, increasing the risk of returning to substance use. Peer recovery coaches have been established as an important component of treatment and recovery programs. In this week's webinar, we will focus on the challenges and concerns facing peer recovery coaches and substance use navigators during the pandemic.
