ROSC VIDEO

The movement toward a Recovery-Oriented System of Care (ROSC) has been propelled forward by a number of sources: SAMHSA has ROSC at the core of one of its Eight Strategic Initiatives, research is finding improved outcomes when the acute care model using episodic treatment is replaced with a long-term model that treats addiction as a chronic disorder, and recovery advocates are calling for a continuum of care that stretches both before and after treatment.  This 4.5-minute video can be viewed and downloaded for free.

This product was a collaborative effort by Mid-America ATTC, NW ATTC, Pacific SW ATTC and the ATTC Network Coordinating Office.
