Peer-based recovery support services are developed within the best practice guidelines of Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC). The development of ROSC for individuals, families, and communities experiencing severe alcohol and other drug problems is based on new ideas, new policies and new approaches to service practices.

Peer-based recovery support is the process of giving and receiving non-professional, non-clinical assistance to achieve long-term recovery from alcohol and/or other drug related problems.
