Peer mentorship to treat alcohol-use disorders has been widely utilized in 12 step sponsorship programs and therapeutic communities with positive outcomes (Azrin et al., 1982; Miller et al., 1999; Meyers and Miller, 2001). More recently, it has been utilized successfully through many recovery initiatives within clinics to assist treatment (Smith Meyers and Miller, 2001).

However, within this recent surge of interest, less attention has been paid to formalizing and testing peer mentorship programs to develop a standardized
treatment that could be utilized broadly across treatment programs (Walters, 2002; Harris et al., 2003;Tracy et al., 2010).
