Peer Recovery Specialist in hospitals

5-hour site visit plus 2-hour follow-up or 5-hours telephone support


In Rhode Island, as in many states, deaths as a result of opioid overdose now greatly outnumber those caused by car accidents. Our AnchorED program dispatches specially trained recovery coaches to emergency departments statewide to respond to overdose survivors.  We’ll share our experiences and guidance on creating a program like this in your community, including:


  • Training for Peer Recovery Specialist
  • Developing a collaborative relationship with hospitals
  • Collecting and reporting data
