Abbe Duke

Certified Peer Specialist

Recovery Specialist & Trainer  - OnTrackNY & ACT institute through the Center for Practice Innovations

Certified Personal Medicine Coach 

I have been working as a peer for the past 10 years in a variety of settings in NY; starting out as a peer advocate for a non profit agency in a state run clinic, working in a partial hospitalization program and for a mobile crisis team, and becoming an OMH peer specialist in clinics and on an ACT team. Most recently, I was working as an advocate for those served by the NYC children's division.  
My role as peer staff has allowed me the ability to grow stronger in my own wellness through my work and relationships with those served in our programs, but has also shown me the reliance our system has on "recovery," through medication and the medical model.  Becoming a Certified Personal Medicine Coach gives me the opportunity to highlight the multitude of pathways to wellness not only for those served in our systems but for the peer specialists who work within.
