As you complete your Candidacy Application and Accreditation Self Study, you will be uploading several documents; you will also need hard copies of these documents later in the accreditation process. Your team should (a) identify a central location on a computer or server to file the electronic documents, and (b) a file cabinet drawer or binder to organize the hard copies.

CAPRSS has developed a set of rigorous standards that come directly from the recovery community and reflect current practice in peer recovery support. The standards are the core of the accreditation process.
