ADULT PEER SUPPORT services are recovery support services in which a Certified Peer Support
Specialist utilizes his/her training, lived experience and experiential knowledge to mentor, guide and
coach the member as he/she works to achieve self-identified recovery and resiliency goals. These
services are designed to promote empowerment, foster self-determination and choice, and inspire
hope as the member progresses through the recovery process.
Peer support services are typically delivered to a person with a serious mental illness or co-occurring
mental health and substance use disorder who is actively involved in their own recovery process. This
specialized support is intended to complement an array of therapeutic services and may be offered
before, during, or after mental health treatment has begun to facilitate long-term recovery in the
community. (Supplemental Clinical Criteria: Optum Idaho)
