What is a Recovery Oriented System of Care?

ROSC is not a treatment agency. It is a community based network of formal and informal services developed and partnered to help those seeking to sustain long-term recovery. We are here to help individuals and families impacted by substance use disorders.

“A ROSC is a coordinated  network of community based services and supports that is person-centered and built on the strengths and resilience of individuals, families and communities to achieve abstinence and improved health, wellness and quality of life for those with or at risk of alcohol and drug problems.” ~ William White (Read William White’s the full Definition of ROSC)
