About our Logo

The PEER Center LOGO

The triangle represents The PEER Center where transformation happens. The PEER Center is a warm and inviting environment where personal sharing about the recovery journey is commonplace and encouraged. This warmth, like a cozy and comforting fire on a cool night, is represented by the *swoosh*. The colors of purple and green are considered universal for hope, healing and recovery. Let these colors remind you to Celebrate Recovery!

PEER – is an acronym for Peer’s Enriching Each others’ Recovery

The PEER Center began operations in January 2007 as a consumer-operated drop-in program within a traditional mental health services agency, for individuals living with mental illness and/or alcohol or other drug addiction. From the beginning, it was intended to serve as a place where associates (members) could learn about their illness or addiction, talk with others about their struggles and recovery, and spend time with others who have “walked the walk” to improve their lives. The PEER Center continues that focus along with an effort to educate and support family members of individuals living with mental illness or drug / alcohol addiction. All staff at The PEER Center has lived experience of mental illness, drug or alcohol addiction, or trauma . In January 2010 The PEER Center became an independent non-profit agency, supported by its own Board of Directors, the majority of whom are also persons with lived experience of mental illness, addiction or trauma. On May 1, 2011, The PEER Center expanded operations to a second location. Our current primary source of funding is through a grant from The Alcohol Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County.
