Dear Service Providers, Staff, and Others: Nevada is looking at the possibility of a certification process for Prevention Specialists and Peer Recovery. We need your input on whether to proceed forward with this process. Please take 5 minutes to complete one or both of the surveys. One is for Prevention Specialists and one is for Peer Recovery. The links should open directly to the surveys but you can also copy and paste into your browser.
We will be closing this survey next Friday, June 17 and VALUE your input. I know we are all over surveyed but would appreciate your time in completing these.
Thanks in advance,
Linda Lang, NV Statewide Coalition Partnership
