Free NAADAC Webinar

April 3, 2014

A component of the Recovery to Practice (RTP) Initiative

Description

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.  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.  Join us for this free live webinar and learn about ROSC!

Learning Objectives

As a result of participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • define ROSC, its characteristics, and implications for services;
  • understand the importance of role clarity: The addiction counselor within a ROSC;
  • understand the role of clinical supervision;
  • identify two examples of how ROSC is being implemented around the country (Michigan and Philadelphia); and
  • state how to connect the dots between ROSC and Recovery Management.
