In the summer of 2009 the Southeast Addiction Technology Transfer Center and the Great Lakes Addiction Technology Transfer Center convened a two-day Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) workshop in Atlanta, Georgia, featuring nationally-recognized speakers William White and Ijeoma Achara. The goals of this event aimed to highlight the emergence of recovery as an organizing paradigm for the addiction treatment field and to outline how frontline service practices change as systems of care & local addiction treatment programs shift from an acute care (AC) model of intervention to a model of sustained recovery management (RM). The workshop also aimed to identify the characteristics of a ROSC, explore the implications of ROSC for multiple levels of the treatment system, and to explain the advantages and limitations associated with different models of ROSC.
Each workshop session on this DVD has been broken down into smaller segments, or chapters, to facilitate usage of these materials for workshops and presentations, and to make it easier and faster to find specific areas of content related to ROSC. We also included a whole new section entitled “Supplemental Resources” that contains the latest ROSC research and resources including monographs, reports, and the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) “Definition of Recovery” and “ROSC Definition and Values” handouts. We hope that these materials will assist you in the effort to achieve system implementation of the core ROSC principles.

The Southeast Addiction Technology Transfer Center (Southeast ATTC) located at Morehouse School of Medicine's National Center for Primary Care develops alliances to support and implement best treatment practices, and provides technology transfer activities to increase the awareness, knowledge and skills of practitioners and pre-service professionals.
Southeast ATTC fosters cultural appropriateness, cultivates system change, disseminates addiction information, identifies resources, and promotes science to service treatment approaches that support workforce development and practice improvement. We also sponsor and co-sponsor training events; plan with public and private organizations in partnerships and collaborations; address the special needs of specific populations to support cultural appropriateness; and provide technical assistance to the addiction treatment community.
Southeast ATTC also provides continuing education in addiction treatment to pre-service and practicing professionals. We continue to expand our network of regional substance abuse professionals by recruiting students into the field of addictions and providing relevant academic curriculum and training. Addiction educators, the recovery population, clinicians in the areas of primary care, mental health and HIV/AIDS, community and faith based organizations also receive current information on addiction.
