Difference between clinical peer services and peer run services

Peer services inside a clinical setting are to integrate peers into clinical setting in order to change the cultural of an organization to be more recovery oriented from recovery language to awareness to recovery needs through peer services.


Peer services by a peer run organization are to integrate peers into the community through a community-based peer services from socialization, citizenship, adult life skills, community integration and community services to reduce and live stigma free as an integrated member of the community. Peer runs allow a person to self-direct one’s recovery services and to have voice and choice in the recovery activities that occur at a peer run.



Peer services work in coordination of care along the continuum of care. A peer should not have one or the other but both.

Clinics and peer runs can bill for services on the same day – just NOT at the same time. Peer runs are block purchase and improve the CAP rate! Clinics may copy what we do in a clinical setting but the approach, methods and setting are NOT the same.
