The best advice comes from someone who has already gone through, or is currently going through, a struggle similar to your own. Peer support services at FFWC are programs designed by and administered by people who are recovering from their own substance use disorder. These people have maintained their sobriety for some time and can offer insights and empathy that others may not be able to provide. Our Peer Support Staff are certified as North Carolina Peer Support Specialists and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the services we provide.
