Building a Recovery-Oriented System of Care - Columbus, OH - June 25, 2015

Dublin, OH  ♦  Thursday, June 25, 2015  ♦  11am - 1pm



Recovery is not a compartmentalized process, but an ongoing journey with multiple care providers assisting along the way.  Employee assistance professionals, private - practice therapists, residential centers, interventionists, outpatient community resources, and many others have a profound impact on those in recovery.  Coordinating care between these providers can be difficult, but the Recovery - Oriented System of Care model, when implemented effectively, can provide people in recovery with wraparound services to help them maintain their sobriety.

  • Understand The Recovery - Oriented System of Care model, and how it has shifted the focus of addiction treatment facilities from episodic care to ongoing recovery support
  • Explain how treatment centers and the recovery community have established meaningful recovery support services, including community-based recovery centers, to help individuals gain important life skills and strengthen their long-term sobriety
  • Demonstrate practical strategies to help treatment facilities and individual providers partner with recovery organizations to offer more extended support to patients
