Tennessee Recovery Navigators are people in long-term recovery who can serve as an access point to treatment and recovery resources.
Navigators must maintain a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS) Certification in order to use his/her lived experience to help others find recovery. Their responsibility is first and foremost to meet patients who have recently overdosed in the emergency department and connect them with the substance abuse treatment and recovery services they need.
