What is a ROsc?

Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care

A ROSC is a coordinated network of community-based services and supports that is person-centered and builds on the strengths and resilience of individuals, families, and communities to achieve abstinence and improve health, wellness, and quality of life for those with or at risk of alcohol and drug problems.

Values Underlying a ROSC

People-Centered Approach

A ROSC centers services and supports around the needs, preferences, and strengths of individuals.

Self-Directed Approach

A ROSC encourages and supports individuals in exercising the greatest level of choice over their service and support options and responsibility for their recovery.

Strength-Directed Approach

A ROSC identifies and builds on the assets, strengths, resources, and resilience of the individual, family, and community, rather than emphasizing needs, deficits, and pathologies.

Participation of the community

A ROSC acknowledges the role that family members, caregivers, significant others, friends, and other allies and the community can play in the recovery process.
