In 2003 we created a vision of recovery for all through a transformation that would put the person first in all our services. The fundamentals of this transformation include: the message of hope; wellness and recovery education; lots of peer support; and integrating peer providers on our teams as Peer Support Specialists, recovery educators, and as role models of recovery.
Today Recovery Innovations employs a workforce of over 800 full and part-time employees. Approximately 425 or 62 percent of our workforce are peers working in the discipline of peer support. They are filling positions ranging from executive and senior management to frontline staff. RI provides peer supported crisis services, recovery based housing, peer support and self-directed services, recovery education classes, an Associate’s Degree in Recovery program as well as vocational services.
We are very excited to share what we have learned along the way in the following learning-centered workshops:
- Recovery Pathways and the META Service Model
- Organizational Recovery and Transformation
- Peer Support and Self-Directed Services
- From Day Treatment to Recovery Education
