  What does peer-based support mean?    
       
 

Living Room Cardiff’s peer support is the process of giving and receiving non-professional, non-clinical assistance to achieve long-term recovery from severe alcohol and/or other drug-related problems or harmful behaviours.

The definition contains several critical elements:
Peer based means that support and services are provided by individuals who have successfully achieved addiction recovery. Recovery is concentrated around three main elements:
1. sobriety (or working towards abstinence from the substance/drug/behaviour),
2. improvement in general health (physical, emotional relational), and
3. reintegration (community life and participation).

Living Room Cardiff’s Definition of Recovery:
A person is in recovery when they say they are or have an interest in recovery.
