Partners for Recovery develops a Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) Resource Guide

The Partners for Recovery (PFR) Initiative supports the development of Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC). PFR prepared a comprehensive "Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) Resource Guide" (30pp, PDF, 1.1MB) to assist policy makers and treatment and recovery providers with enhancing prevention, treatment, and recovery services in an evolving health care environment.

This Guide outlines steps for planning and implementing ROSC and aligns the tenets of national health care reform to the history, framework, and benefits of ROSC.

To facilitate efforts to organize and establish ROSC, readers will find website links to valuable resources in each section of the guide, such as research studies, manuals, white papers, practice guides, and conference presentations.
