The mission of Georgia CARES is to promote long-term recovery from substance use disorders by providing experienced peer support and advocating for self-directed care. Noel Kendrick, Bean French, Gino Lloyd and Marcella Grace have successfully trained and been recognized by the state of Georgia as Certified Peer Specialists (CPS). Noel is a dynamic and inspiring leader at Cause for Hope and continues to be a valuable contributor to our program. Bean has been offering his energy and enthusiam almost since we began. Marcella is our first woman to receive this distinction. Certified Peer Specialists serve in a variety of settings and are trained to assist their peers in skills building, goal setting, problem solving, and helping them build their own self-directed recovery tools.
