Focusing on Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care
By Susan Richardson, October 05 2012
King County Reclaiming Futures is aligning their recovery work with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's revised definition and vision of recovery:
“A process of change through which individuals work to improve their own health and wellbeing, live a self-directed life, and strive to achieve their full potential.”
Please take a moment to review the new "performance indicator" report, released by the King County Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) Mental Illness, Chemical Abuse and Dependency Services Division (MHCADSD).
A few highlights from the summary:
- Successful grant applications
- High quality programs
- A wide range of services
- Strong policymaker outreach
Despite difficult fiscal times, King County also made significant progress transforming to a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC). They continue to focus on evidence-based practices throughout their system and increase provider capacity to use evidence-based service models.
