Recovery, as defined by a Betty Ford Institute Consensus Panel, is "a voluntarily maintained lifestyle comprised of sobriety, personal health and socially responsible living." One of the goals of the Office of Recovery Oriented Systems of Care is to help people, with substance use and mental health disorders, enter into a state of long-term recovery.
We are committed to developing a recovery oriented system of care (ROSC) in Michigan. As a result, we initiated a process to engage stakeholders throughout the state, including people in recovery, family members, providers, and county administrators, in a dialogue to assist in creation of a shared vision to shape the future of Michigan's prevention and treatment system. To lead the ROSC process in Michigan, OROSC has formed a Transformation Steering Committee (TSC). See more information, newsletters, and fact sheets on the ROSC TSC Webpage.
A network of 56 Drop-In Centers across the state provide services to address the social and emotional needs of people with mental disabilities.
