DBH Peer Specialist Certification Training Program & Waiver Testing

District of Columbia Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) is accepting applications for the DBH Peer Specialist Certification Training Program and Waiver Testing.

 

Peer Specialists are self-identified people who are successful in the recovery process and who help others living with mental and/or substance use disorders.

 

Through mutual respect and shared understanding based on similar experiences, Peer Specialists help people get into treatment and meet the challenges to sustain recovery.

The Peer Specialist Certification Training Program builds on the experience of people in recovery with training in foundational competencies required by anyone who provides peer support in behavioral health services.

 

The Peer Specialist Certification Training Program will reinforce your knowledge based on personal experience, bring a unique prospective to person-centered care, and enrich our recovery support services.
