Lerner Center Graduate Research Assistant, Austin McNeill Brown, co-authored the paper, Peer-based recovery support services delivered at recovery community organizations: Predictors of improvements in individual recovery capital. The paper examines peer-based recovery support services delivered through a recovery community organization (RCO).

The authors found that peer-based recovery support services delivered by RCOs help to significantly improve individual recovery capital, as well as assist in facilitating involvement with an array of recovery support services that may contribute to other functional social determinant domain improvements and lower negative health events.
