Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) and the Role of Recovery Community Organizations in Illinois

DASA is pleased to announce that a day-long summit will be held to discuss Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) and the Role of Recovery Community Organizations in Illinois as a pre-conference meeting at the Illinois Certification Board (ICB) on Monday, March 19, 2018. The summit will focus on what is needed to support the role of Recovery Community Organizations as a critical part of the State's system of care for persons in recovery. Recovery Community Organizations (RCOs) are independent, non-profit entities led and governed by people in recovery, family members, friends and allies. RCOs focus on long-term recovery from substance use disorders, with a goal to enhance the quantity and quality of support available to people seeking and experiencing long-term recovery from addiction. Current RCOs, organizations interested in becoming an RCO, SUD treatment providers interested in collaborating with RCOs, people in recovery, family members, friends and allies are invited to participate in this informative and interactive session.

The March 19th summit will also allow members of the ROSC steering committee who participated in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) / Bringing Recovery Support to Scale -Technical Assistance Strategy Center (BRSS-TACS) Policy Academy to present ideas and gain feedback on the implementation of programs and initiatives highlighted during the Policy Academy. Please complete the attached form to attend. Registration is limited and closes on March 5, 2018. If you are interested but unable to make the meeting, please contact Carolyn Hartfield at Carolyn.Hartfield@Illinois.gov to be added to an invitation list for the next summit.
