Peer Advocates play an important role in substance use treatment. They use their experiences to improve engagement with new clients and perform a variety of duties on the job. However, transitioning into the workforce can also bring some challenges. This course will focus on the professional aspects of peer advocacy and the boundaries they are encouraged to follow. This course will also review the Code of Ethical and Professional Conduct, as required by the New York State Certification Board.
