The purpose of this project is to encourage staff, clients, and family members to understand and implement a system of care that enhances the chances of our clients to recover, get well, get better, and increase their heath and quality of life. There are two components to this project: 1) introducing the concepts to staff and stakeholders, and 2) developing and providing technical assistance to individual systems of care to operationalize the concepts found in recovery-based systems. The introductory trainings are in the process of being completed. To date 14 events have been completed with over 1,400 attendees. Additional requests for the introduction continue to come in and we are attempting to meet the demand.
Technical assistance to local programs is now being developed with several local programs already asking to become pilot systems. Technical assistance will range from providing referrals to local programs on trainings and trainers available, to a system assessment, consultation, training, and ongoing support. Presently, the assessment process and training components are being developed with piloting to begin in the near future.
