Establishing a Model for Certified Recovery Peer Advocate Training Programs

Wednesday, September 18th 12:00 - 1:00 PM

The Certified Recovery Peer Advocate (CRPA) training program at Queensborough Community College of the City University of New York (Queensborough), supported by the New York Alliance for Careers in Healthcare and New York City’s Department of Small Business Services provides a tremendous opportunity for qualified students to develop the competencies needed to be successful CRPAs. CRPAs are individuals who are certified to provide coaching, support, information, guidance, and motivation to those seeking or sustaining recovery from a substance use diagnosis. Students enrolled in Queensborough’s CRPA training, participate in an 80-hour comprehensive program that includes CRPA training combined with a 3-credit college-level health education course, HE 104: Addictions and Dependencies. This presentation aims to share our experiences of integrating a non-credit training program with a college-credit health education course that provides students with the knowledge, skills and opportunities for employment to help individuals through their recovery process.
