Engagement Centers are walk-in hubs for guests to connect with other people who have similar lived experiences with behavioral health challenges, including staff who are peers. They can also begin learning about local services, supports and resources that can help enrich their lives.
We encourage guests to move forward at their own pace, and find their own positive pathway to behavioral health and wellness.
“As a peer advocate, I am somebody with lived experience and yet I didn’t see much value in the things I was doing before I got sober. It was difficult to know that somebody else could benefit from my story. I started to be able to see that when I was trying to help other people move forward in their own recovery.
“Sometimes it’s not how long you are working with someone but the impact you have and the chance to stand by them and say ‘this is possible. Is this where you want to go? Let’s see how we can get there.’ ” – Zachary Cohn
