1 NJ Division of Addiction Services Moving Forward: A Recovery-Oriented System of Care for Addiction ServicesNJ Division of Addiction Services
2 What Is Recovery?Recovery refers to the ways in which persons with or affected by addiction tap resources within and beyond the self to move beyond experiencing these disorders to managing them and their residual effects to build full, meaningful lives in the community. It is regaining wholeness, connection to the community, and a purpose-filled life.White, W. and Davidson, L. Recovery: The bridge to integration? Part one. Behavioral Healthcare, November 2006.
3 DAS Actions New mission statement Strategic planning systems change process – annual reviewSent delegation to CSAT Regional ForumInvited to New York to share our plans and activities for transformation to chronic care modelAttended Recovery Symposium in PhiladelphiaInvited to participate in the Mutual Assistance Program for States (MAPS) for technical assistance to SSAs interested in Recovery Oriented Systems of CareInvited NJ counties to engage in the planning process with a renewed focus on recovery-oriented care
4 DAS Mission StatementThe Division of Addiction Services (DAS) promotes the prevention and treatment of substance abuse and supports the recovery of individuals affected by the chronic disease of addiction. As the Single State Agency for substance abuse, DAS is responsible for regulating, licensing, monitoring, planning and funding substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery support services in New Jersey.To achieve its mission, DAS provides leadership and collaborates with providers, consumers, and other stakeholders to develop and sustain a system of client-centered care that is accessible, culturally competent, accountable to the public, and grounded in best practices that yield measurable results.

6 Regional Summit Meetings 2007 Questions Asked 1. What should recovery-oriented systems of care (ROSC’s) look like?2. What steps are necessary to move toward ROSC’s?3. What steps have you already taken to implement ROSC’s?4. What challenges do you face in implementing ROSC’s?5. What steps are you prepared to take to support this change in the next 12 months?

10 Guiding Principles of Recovery There are many pathways to recoveryRecovery is self-directed and empoweringRecovery involves a personal recognition of the need for change and transformationRecovery is holisticRecovery has cultural dimensionsRecovery exists on a continuum of improved health and wellnessRecovery emerges from hope and gratitude
11 Guiding Principles of Recovery (con’t) Recovery involves a process of healing and self-definitionRecovery involves addressing discrimination and transcending shame and stigmaRecovery is supported by peers and alliesRecovery involves (re)joining and (re)building a life in the communityRecovery is a realityCSAT (2005), National Summit on Recovery Conference Report
12 DAS PROGRESS CLIENT-CENTERED Working to minimize the stigma associated with the use of medications to support recoveryClient Advocate on staff who works with clients to resolve discrimination, advises on client advocacy issues and initiates anti-stigma campaignsCitizen’s Advisory Council convenedClient satisfaction survey in July 2005
14 A Chronic Care ModelSubstance dependence should be viewed as a chronic illness (such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma) and not as an acute illnessThe system of care, including treatment and funding mechanisms, must reflect the best practices proven to effectively achieve chronic illness recoveryWhen treated as a chronic illness, the compliance and relapse rates of substance dependence are as good or better than other chronic illnesses (O’Brien & McLellan)
15 A Chronic Care Model PRINCIPLES OF CARE Must be evidence-based and jointly planned (i.e., client- centered) and support a healing relationship and lead to improved wellness and the opportunity for maintenance of recoveryMust be specific to the needs of individuals allowing for the treatment experience to be based on clinical need and offer a broad array of resources over a continuum of careMust provide coordinated, continuous attention to the individual’s needs for information and readiness for behavioral changeFlaherty, M. (2006), A Unified Vision for the Prevention and Management of Substance Use Disorders: Building Resiliency, Wellness and Recovery – A Shift from an Acute Care to a Sustained Care Recovery Management Model.
16 DAS PROGRESS CHRONIC CARE MODEL Case management added as a reimbursable service in its newest FFS network, the Co-Occurring NetworkCase Managers in NETINIATx focus on step downDrug Court shift to clinically driven level of servicesPhilosophical changeRelapse is NOT a reason for dischargeAsk different questionsWhy did the client fail treatment?How did the system fail the client?
18 Implications for Systems Change Greater focus on what happens BEFORE and AFTER primary treatmentTransition from professionally developed treatment plans to client-directed recovery plansGreater emphasis on the physical, social and cultural environment in which recovery succeeds or failsIntegration of professional treatment and indigenous recovery support groups
19 Implications for Systems Change (con’t) Increased use of peer-based recovery coaches (guides, mentors, assistants, support specialists), andIntegration of paid recovery coaches and recovery support volunteers within interdisciplinary treatment teams.Flaherty, M. (2007). CSATS Recovery Supports Services Meeting.

24 Recovery-Oriented Quality Care Recovery-oriented care shifts the design of the addiction treatment system from an acute care model, focused on serial episodes of biophysical stabilization to a model of sustained recovery management.Recovery-oriented care focuses on the acquisition and maintenance of recovery capital (internal and external assets required for recovery initiation and self-maintenance), global health (physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual), and community integration (meaningful roles, relationships, and activities).White, W. and Davidson, L.
