This is the problem with peer support. Ultimately, the people running it all are the people licking the industry’s boots. and those people should be avoided at all costs. When I briefly dabbled in peer support, each and every one of the following things happened: one of the peer supervisors was a bully who relentlessly pushed around a depressed client to make her feel unwelcome. The reason being that this client was not on disability and therefore determined to not need help that much. The director was actively using drugs, and causing many NA sponsored to relapse and/or OD. One of my colleagues was a drug dealer who flunked many members who were in drug court out of drug court.
