  • Peer Recovery Supporters (PRS) will be recruited by conducting outreach events at open Narcotics Anonymous meetings and faith-based community events.
  • ECI will work with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (Ohio MHAS) to hold peer recovery supporters certification training sessions in the intervention counties and to keep track of the number of family peer mentors.
