Sunrise Community for Recovery and Wellness is taking peer support on the road! Peers on the Move increases access to Certified Peer Support Services for those in the rural areas and counties surrounding Asheville, North Carolina.
This is done via a three-person transportation team who staff a mobile unit to visit regional Recovery Community Centers, outreach locations and community partners. Recognizing that transportation is a significant barrier in rural areas where public transportation isn’t available, we provide Uber gift cards and 1:1 transportation to individuals unable to receive services any other way.
Sunrise staff of Certified Peer Support Specialists do what peers do best: recovery coaching, healthcare navigation, peer mentoring and resource support provision.
The mobile unit is stocked with basic items to help improve individual’s health and quality of life.
Through the mobile unit, Sunrise will be able to provide staff support to new and emerging Recovery Community Centers in rural areas while implementing a strategic regional transportation initiative.
We want to hear from you! If you would like us to bring our Mobile Recovery Center to your recovery center, business, civic group, community or outreach location, call 828-301-4989 or complete the form below and someone will get in touch with you.
