Peer Oversight and Managment

Peer Oversight and Management

Wednesday January 24, 2018


Addiction Professionals Certification Board

180 A Tices Lane

East Brunswick, NJ 08816

Peer Recovery Specialists are the cutting edge of recovery support services across the country and represent a future for a career in the addiction field. This emerging workforce has become particularly strong in New Jersey. As a result, questions regarding appropriate oversight and management of substance use disorder recovery specialists are being raised. This class is designed to address those questions by surveying core competencies of a Recovery Specialist Supervisor recently developed by the states of Oregon and Pennsylvania and reviewed by William White.

Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to articulate core competencies for peer oversight and management across four domains:

  • Recovery Oriented Philosophy
  • Providing Education and Training
  • Facilitating Quality Supervision
  • Performing Administrative Duties.


 Cost: $60


*This class has been approved by The Addiction Professionals Certification Board, Inc. for 6hrs of c.e.u.  (AADC, APS, CADC, CDA, CPS, CPRS, LCADC)

*6 hr C.E.U.S will be offered
