REPORTS TO: Manager of Intake and Peer Support Services

ABOUT DELPHI RISE:

Delphi Rise is a small but impactful community-based, non-profit behavioral health organization that focuses on supporting individuals with substance use addiction.  Since 1936, we have been offering our community an array of services including Outpatient Treatment; school-based prevention, education and counseling; prison Reentry Services; HUD Rapid Re-Housing supports; and Health Homes Care Management services. We also operate an Open Access Clinic, providing on-demand substance abuse evaluations and referrals. In fact, we are the only 24/7 Open Access Provider in Monroe County!

Delphi Rise’s staff is experienced, passionate and resilient, always putting our clients at the center of our work. Our culture is one of warmth, laughter, affirmation and hope.

 

SUMMARY:

A peer is someone with lived experience with substance use who uses their experiential knowledge to support the recovery goals of individuals who use drugs and/or alcohol. Peers are natural support experts, meaning that the relationships they establish can lead to increased feelings of support, safety, and wellbeing among the individuals they serve.  Peer support services are participant-centered; even though services emphasize knowledge and wisdom through lived experience, peers are encouraged to be extremely intentional in how they share their story or pull from first-hand knowledge to ensure that support work chiefly benefits program participants.

  • Link participants to formal recovery supports
  • Educate program participants about various modes of recovery
  • Administrative duties associated with program: copying, scanning, and data entry
