PEER SUPPORT SERVICES
CAPSA is working to develop and implement peer support services in Ottawa and surrounding region. Currently, we host a weekly peer recovery group for individuals affected by addiction called All People All Pathways. We plan to introduce other peer-focused initiatives in the near future.
ALL PEOPLE, ALL PATHWAYS
The purpose of our weekly peer recovery group is for individuals affected by addiction to share their experiences about what has helped them on their journey, and provide a safe and aware environment for those seeking help to ask questions, free from stigma or discrimination. Our meetings are facilitated by peer professionals on a voluntary basis.
Each week, our meeting focuses on a different topic. There will be an educational component followed by discussion. The last meeting of the month will feature an invited guest. Those in attendance are encouraged to ask questions or provide suggestions based on their personal experience. There will also be opportunities to participate in volunteer activities in our broader community.
Our group is inclusive of all individuals in or seeking recovery from all forms of addiction, their families, allies, and professionals. All are welcome to attend our meetings.
ALL ARE WELCOME
