Peer Mentoring Outline

  • Peer mentoring is a form of mentorship that usually takes place between a person who has lived through a specific experience (the peer mentor) and a person who is new to that experience (the peer mentee).
  • Peer mentors provide education and support opportunities to mentees.
  • The peer mentor may challenge the mentee with new ideas, and encourage the mentee to move beyond what is most comfortable.
  • The peer mentor will serve as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking, or already in, recovery.
  • The peer mentor will help a client find resources for treatment, family support, and local or online support groups.
  • Peer mentors do not address trauma or process the past; the focus is on the present and future.
  • Peer mentors are unlike addiction counselors, in that mentors are non-clinical and do not diagnose or treat addiction or any mental health issues.

Disclaimers

  • Carlee Walker does not hold any specialized degree or certification. She is basing her peer mentoring services purely on personal experience and the education she received from her Bachelor’s degree in Human Services.
  • Carlee Walker will not be held responsible for any adverse or undesirable consequences from the personalized recover plans that are offered. By checking the Terms and Conditions, the mentee releases Carlee Walker from all responsibility and liability.
  • The personalized recovery plan is just a plan. Carlee firmly believes that recovering from meth addiction is more realistically attainable with a plan that includes resources. The recovery plan is to be used as a guide and a tool for the addict to come down and start the recovery process. Sometimes all that is needed to take the first big step is a plan and some support.
