Military service members and veterans experience a culture that is unique and separate from that of the civilian population. Understanding military culture can help Certified Peer Recovery Specialists connect with veterans and service members and provide more meaningful support. Military Culture Training for Peers will provide an overview of the US Military structure, the values of each service, military lingo, and military and veteran substance use. Finally, the participants will learn about the similarities between military and recovery peers culture and how peers can better serve military and veterans.
