RIPIN has branched out into the adult world with the Peer Assisted Health Initiative (PAHI). Now in 10 locations, this peer support program places trained RIPIN Resource Specialists at adult medical practices and specialty sites throughout Rhode Island.
PAHI resource specialists are adults who have had obstacles in their own lives and now offer support to others with challenges such as chronic illness, disability and special healthcare needs.
You can find a PAHI Resource Specialist at Bay side Family Healthcare, North Kingstown; Butler Hospital, Providence; Looking Upwards, Middletown; Northwest Community Health Care, Pascoag; Rhode Island Department of Corrections, Cranston; Rhode Island Hospital/Medical Primary Care, Providence; St. Joseph’s Primary Clinic and OBGYN, Providence; and Wood River Health Services, Hope Valley.
