Online Peer Communities

What is The Peer Recovery Network PORTAL™? Click on the PORTAL™ logo below and see! The word portal simply means entrance. This is a special kind of entrance. It opens to an entire peer recovery community. And it is always open.

The Peer Recovery Network was created as a way for peers in recovery to more effectively organize their community, to communicate with each other, and to have a stronger voice for advocacy efforts. Thanks to SAMHSA funding for this project, we can now unite the only Recovery Community Organization (RCO) providing recovery support services to Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) patients with OASAS and ASAP. Together, we are building an infrastructure that is inclusive of, and not limited to, all peers in all RCOs in New York State.

It’s free to sign up. Join now to be part of this growing network of advocates. Become a part of an active recovery community and see how your voice can make a difference!


What is the REC Room? REC Rooms are private, online MARS™ communities. You can only participate in a REC Room if you are a registered participant who is part of group that has had a face-to-face meeting. If you are interested in more information, contact the MARS™ office and ask about attending the Beyond MARS™ Implementation Team Training. That training will help you to create a MARS™ Project of your own. The next training is scheduled October 27-30, 2015.
