Peer Collaborative

Recovery is Real. Attainable. Sustainable. Powerful.

The CFLR, Inc. Peer Collaborative and Training Model

  • Our program of extensive training, supervision, and collaboration started in June of 2018 with the understanding that peer services can be one of the best bridges between the work that happens in many of our offices to the actual practice of the recovery lifestyle in the real world. CFLR, Inc. is one of NYS’s best practice trainer sites recognized by FOR-NY and New York State Certification Board. Our peers work as a team instead of in isolation.
  • The goal is to create a strong, well trained, recovery employable WORKFORCE of peers with lived experience.
  • Community agencies have the opportunity to include their peer professionals in ongoing skills training and collaborative work.
  • Peers engage in weekly skills training well beyond their certification requirements.
  • Training includes: Expansion of CCAR’s Recovery Coach Academy and Ethical Considerations for Recovery Coaches with skills practice, Motivational Interviewing and what does it mean to use lived experience, Mindful Communication and Boundary Setting, Science of Addiction, Our Stories Have Power and how do we use our lived experience, HIPPA/Confidentiality, Engaging Positive Intent vs. Resentments, Professionalism and reviewing skills needed for the work, Advocacy and preparing to engage other agencies, peer groups, the media, Documentation for reimbursement, Peer Integration and Stages of change toolkit and understanding the agency perspective, Wellness Planning for the coach and the participants, with additional training developed as needs arise.
