Peer Support Program
Seasons provides peer support to assist clients on their recovery journey through a mentoring relationship. This service connects individuals who are struggling with behavioral health symptoms with others who have learned to cope with their own symptoms and have been stable in their recovery for an extended period of time.
Services are delivered by individuals who have common life experiences with the people they are serving. People with mental and/or substance use disorders have a unique ability to help each other based on a deep understanding of this experience. In self-help and mutual support, our peer support workers offer strength and hope to their peers, which allows for personal growth, wellness promotion, and recovery. Peer support staff also encourage a sense of belonging within the community, and provide a positive role model to their peers.
The services provided by the peer support program are not meant to replace traditional treatment. Rather, services are intended to help individuals stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the risk of relapse. Peer support services can help extend the reach of treatment outside the office walls and into the everyday life of the individual being served.
