Peer support workers are individuals who have been successful in the recovery process and who can help others experiencing similar situations. Through shared understanding, respect, and mutual empowerment, peer support workers help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process, reducing the likelihood of relapse. Peer support services can effectively extend the reach of treatment beyond the clinical setting and into the everyday environment of those seeking a successful, sustained recovery process.
Thanks to several licensed clinicians, we are able to offer participants in the Heroes Comfort’s program, up to three free sessions for mental health assistance. You are eligible to receive care from therapists or counselors for concerns such as depression, anxiety, relationship or family issues.
Grounding is a practice that can help you pull away from flashbacks, unwanted memories, and negative or challenging emotions. These techniques may help distract you from what you’re experiencing and refocus on what’s happening in the present moment. You can use grounding techniques to help create space from distressing feelings in nearly any situation, but they’re especially helpful if you’re wrestling with PTSD, depression, anxiety, or other associated symptoms.
