Peer Support is becoming recognized as a specialty requiring certification and is on the rise throughout the nation. Peers working in the behavioral health field have personal, lived experience with addiction or mental health and utilize their success in recovery to help others set their own path of recovery. The Maryland Center of Excellence on Problem Gambling provides the only Gambling-Specific Peer Support in the State through outreach and collaboration with behavioral health providers, connecting with help seekers from the 1-800-GAMBLER helpline, and promoting awareness on the risks of gambling with resources for help at community events.
Learning Objectives:

Participants should be able to:

  • Peer strategies to help others using their own experience, gambling resources, and other community supports.
  • How peers foster a network of resources and comprehensive tools to support gambling recovery.
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are provided for attendance on live webinar presentations; no CEUs are awarded for recording views.
