You and your direct service provider at Passages will discuss your needs and your direct service provider will help you link with those community resources that are of interest to you. This linkage can take many different forms from providing you with a phone number to actually accompanying you to meet with someone at another agency.
Our peer specialists practice from a Recovery Model, which means that your peer specialist will share with you tools developed by peers for peers such as Wellness Action Recovery Plans. The focus in peer support is on self-determination, hope, and a holistic approach to wellness.
We strive to provide a welcoming and comfortable approach to services, whether spending time one-on-one with your direct service provider at your home, in the community, or at our office. Passages is a Consumer/ Family Operated Service Provider, which means that many of our staff and our governing board of directors identify as individuals with “lived experience” or a family member. You should expect to be treated with the utmost respect and dignity and to be given the opportunity to learn how to use powerful recovery tools.
Peer Specialists can function in many different roles depending on their credentials. It is best to check with your Mental Health Primary Care Provider (MHCP) as to the scope of services your Peer Specialist can provide.
Please call Passages at 509-892-9241. We accept individuals who qualify for Washington Apple Health Medicaid and have enrolled with Molina, Amerigroup, Community Health Plan of Washington, or foster youth who are enrolled with Coordinated Care.
