Peer Support Services in Outpatient Clinical Settings 

The Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) recognizes Substance Use Disorder (SUD) as a chronic condition best managed by a broad continuum of services. As with other chronic conditions, where reoccurrence of symptoms is possible, the ability to integrate non-clinical support is essential to comprehensive care planning. OASAS supports efforts to further expand available clinical and non-clinical support services for individuals and families living with SUD, including the development of a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC).
