Recovery Partners of Montgomery Peer Groups
Peers who have completed the basic RCA training and are working towards becoming credentialed or are already a CPRS (Certified Peer Recovery Specialist) in Maryland anchor RPM’s Recovery Support Services at several treatment locations and sites serving homeless adults in Montgomery County.
Recovery Support Services (RSS) at the treatment programs located within 981 Rollins Ave. are closed groups due to privacy and confidentiality rules. Other programs may be limited to people who live on site, such as Men Moving Forward in Recovery held at 600 E. Gude Drive. There may be events or fieldtrips linked to these peer-led RSS such as Adopt-A-Road, visiting a museum or learning about the resources at Montgomery Works.
