ACT Peer Recovery™ is a form of mutual aid and so cannot be part of paid for services that are commissioned. However, providers may be interested in developing local mutual aid services and this can be done through an affiliate agreement. Under this agreement the provider can employ a peer as an ACT Peer Recovery™ development worker who then sets up groups, incubates or coordinates development of a local peer organisation and generally supports the expansion of mutual aid.
Local agreements can also include rights to run facilitated access to ACT Peer Recovery™ groups within the treatment setting. These are run under the FAMA name and peer group leaders can use official materials if they have completed the training and are under license. Any treatment provider can enter into this agreement, from any sector.
