This Collegiate Peer Recovery Network is a project of the Alliance for the Economic Development of Southern West Virginia (AEDSWV) and the Marshall University Center of Excellence for Recovery. The AEDSWV is a joint venture among West Virginia’s southern colleges and universities to better connect the educational resources and workforce training offered in southern West Virginia to promote the region, eliminate redundancies and share best practices, improve the quality of life for area residents, create jobs, keep West Virginia’s talent pool in the state and revitalize southern communities. The Marshall University Center of Excellence for Recovery addresses the systemic, complex issues related to behavioral health within the state of West Virginia. The Center strives to increase access to effective education; evidence-based prevention, early identification, treatment, and recovery services; and foster research on behavioral health well-being and recovery by establishing models for communities and states looking for evidence-based solutions.
