Use Your Personal Experience to Help Others!

The Peer Recovery Specialist Certificate Program is a new partnership between the Northeast Independent Living Program and Northern Essex Community College to recognize and validate the role of peers in the workforce.

This 16-credit Peer Recovery Specialist Certificate is designed to train persons with lived experience, who are in sustained recovery for any mental health, addiction and trauma related challenge, to support others on their recovery journeys and find employment in a variety of settings.
