Peers are a vital piece of the care support system and are not always utilized appropriately. Telehealth provides great opportunities to expand the utilization of peers and leverage their lived experiences of addiction and recovery. When done correctly, peers and care coordination efforts provided in a digital health app can enhance the care system, increase motivation and engagement in addiction recovery services, and improve the overall health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities.
