What is a certified recovery mentor?

Recovery mentors are certified peers who have experienced a variety of challenges similar to the people they serve and have decided to share their success and knowledge by becoming a Certified Recovery Mentor. They are here to support you through the process and help you find the resources and support you need. Certified Recovery Mentors are certified through the Mental Health and Addiction Certification Board of Oregon.

If you are struggling and need to talk to someone now please contact one of the Certified Recovery Mentors listed. If there aren’t Peers listed for your area, feel free to reach out to one from another region. They are there to help!
