How MAP Helps

Being able to connect to others with similar, shared experience is central to developing solid personal recovery. Studies have found the spouses of alcoholics are at increased risk of stressful life events, medical and psychiatric disorders, and greater use of medical care services.

These data suggest it can be important for employers to consider the healthcare needs of not only their employees, but the family members of their employees as well.

MAP provides a way for both the person seeking recovery and their family/primary support network to develop and maintain the personal connection needed for effective recovery.

Through MAP, both employees and dependents struggling with substance misuse can connect on-demand with a certified MAP Peer Recovery Support Specialist that has lived experience and a similar background.

Since 2011, MAP has been the leader in delivering certified peer recovery support services and tracking outcomes for individuals and families seeking recovery from Substance Use Disorder (SUD). MAP's approach demonstrates sustained annual engagement of over 50% with employees and family supports.

What Patients Have to Say About MAP

“[My Peer Specialist] reinforces my recovery and I genuinely enjoy the conversations because I don’t feel so alone and [feel] ‘less crazy’.”

Female Patient, 40 years old

“I learned that my son respected speaking with someone [in recovery] far more than speaking with somebody who hadn’t been through a [similar path]. MAP became really important.”

Father of MAP Patient

“I find it easy to share my week with my peer, whether it’s been positive or negative. He is a life saver. I find the whole MAP experience inspiring.”
