We meet our people where they’re at. We go to the jails, prisons & recovery centers to help educate them on the resources they’ll need upon leaving their facility.
Once they are released, they come straight to us. Peer support is available to everyone. It can address an immediate need or we can add participants to a more formal plan.
Peer support does not replace medical treatment providers. But it is F5 staff who have been in those shoes and got new ones. We can help you with your goals.
What is it?
Peer support is when a person with a lived experience helps others by using their story to connect and offer support.
F5 has peer support specialists that specialize in alcoholism, drug addiction,
mental health, compulsive gambling, and former incarceration. We use our
lived experiences to offer hope and show you that there is another way.
How does it work?
This support helps the individual identify which solutions are best for them to meet their goals. Weekly or monthly meetings can be set up with an F5 Staff Peer Support provider.
Who is it for?
Peer support is for anyone that is struggling mentally.
We often feel alone and that no one understands but peer
support specialists are here to support you during your tough times.
Having experienced the depths of addiction and mental health themselves, our peer support specialists listen without judgement.
