Certified Recovery Specialist Training

The Pennsylvania Mental Health Consumers' Association and Youth MOVE PA now offer the Certified Recovery Specialist Training!

A credential for individuals with personal, lived experience in their own substance use disorder recovery. By offering insight into the recovery process based on their own experience, recovery specialists are able to provide a unique perspective while providing recovery support services. The CRS is not a sponsor, case manager, or a therapist but rather a role model, mentor, advocate, and motivator.

Please contact us at to arrange a training at your location. For further details, visit the Pennsylvania Certification Boards website at Certified Recovery Specialist (CRS) | Pennsylvania Certification Board (
