Ethical Considerations in Peer Assisted Recovery

This course is designed for individuals who are working as peers in offering recovery support services. A strong emphasis will be placed on understanding the similarities and difference between values, norms, principles, morals and ethics as well as on learning how to go about making an ethical decision. Other areas to be explored will include understanding the ethical standards for the delivery of peer recovery services in your jurisdiction as well as the possibility of differing ethical standards given the location of service delivery (Federally Qualified Health Centers, jails/prisons, hospitals/emergency settings, recovery community organizations, etc.).  The training will rely on presentations, exercises and experiential learning techniques. The curriculum development was funded in part Kennebunk Savings Bank by a grant awarded to SOS Recovery Center.  Participants will be able to:

  1. Define ethics, principles and morals;
  2. Describe where to find the ethical standards already developed in their jurisdiction; and
  3. Discuss a format for making ethical decisions.
