Defining Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC)
Wednesday, March 13, 2013
3 – 4pm EST (2 C/1 M/12 P)
The history of the addictions field has been one of evolving paradigms, organizing constructs, evolving core technologies and evolving definitions of the field’s niche in the larger culture whose needs it must serve (William White-Great Lakes ATTC, 2006). There has been much discussion about recovery-oriented systems of care and its acronym ROSC within the addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery community.  However, not all professionals understand ROSC or how it affects the addiction profession.  This webinar is specifically designed to provide a crash course on ROSC: what it means, how it is changing the addiction profession landscape across the country, and how it affects you and your practice.

NAADAC, NCC AP and IC&RC Lead Addiction Profession Through Collaborative Activities

Due to the rapid changes expected in the addiction profession through the Affordable Care Act and parity, three leading organizations in the field – NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, the National Certification Commission for Addiction Professionals (NCC AP) and the International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) – are discussing collaborative activities to ensure professional quality in the delivery of prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery support services.

The leaders of NAADAC, NCC AP and IC&RC view great strength in the strategy of collaboration. Together, the three organizations will work to influence federal policy, including workforce development issues within Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and other departments. The goal of working together is to protect the addiction profession as a specialty within the primary healthcare system.
