Call us today: 330-264-8498

We understand what you’re going through because we’ve been there ourselves.

Our Peer Supporters serve as mentors and coaches, supporting you along your recovery journey. As certified Peer Supporters they are qualified to offer support, hope and inspiration because they understand your struggle. They’ve been through challenges with substance use and/or mental health issues. OneEighty Peer Supporters have direct, lived experience. They self-identify as being in active recovery from substance use, and have been certified by Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services. Similar to our clinical staff, our Peer Supporters are required to obtain Continuing Education Credits. OneEighty Peer Recovery Services (PRS) are community-based services for individuals with mental illness and/or substance use disorder, and include treatment programs, services, and activities that promote recovery, self-determination, self-advocacy, well-being, and independence.

Long-term recovery is possible.

OneEighty Peer Supporters stay consistent in their support of our clients and often bridge the gap between a client and other treatment staff. They relate to the client on a personal level, meeting them where they are spiritually, mentally, and physically. Peer Supporters lead by example by living their own recovery in this community and showing clients that long-term recovery is possible.

OneEighty Peer Supporters are individualized, recovery-focused and based on a relationship that supports the individual’s ability to promote their own recovery. Peer Support Services promote self-directed recovery by working alongside clients and promoting trauma-informed care and diversity competence, encouraging self-direction, and advocating for informed choice.

OneEighty Peer Supporters offer hands-on support with the following:

  • Emotional support
  • Coping skills
  • Participating in treatment
  • Achieving independence
  • Empowerment and self-advocacy skills
  • Identifying and achieving recovery goals
  • Relapse prevention
  • Building a network of community support and resources

Our aim is to ensure the best outcomes for those dealing with mental illness and substance use. Our certified Peer Supporters work in various levels of treatment throughout the agency to improve the client’s chances of continuing their journey with recovery. They also work with various community partners including:

  • Drug Court
  • Family Dependency Court
  • Wayne County Sheriff’s Department


Find programs, services, support groups and resources for mental health, drug and alcohol treatment and intimate partner abuse recovery. Stay connected with others in recovery and guide your journey.
