 Recovery-Oriented Approaches for Substances Use Disorders

Presented By Pavillon

Brian Coon, MA, LCAS, CCS, MAC


Traditional frameworks of addiction recovery and addiction treatment recognize long term supports play an important role following formal treatment.  What further elements of recovery orientation in clinical practice have been developed? 

 This presentation will provide an updated look at substance use disorder treatment and supports for ongoing recovery by reviewing the principles of behavioral health recovery management (BHRM) that later became formalized as recovery-oriented systems of care (ROSC).  The resulting continuum from a traditional orientation to a newer recovery orientation will be applied to innovating in our systems and also in our approaches to helping individuals.  Opportunities for recovery-oriented organizational change and related leadership practices supportive of change at the organizational level will be discussed.


  • Describe the shift from a pathology orientation to a long-term recovery-oriented paradigm
  • List the recovery management principles that can help inform development of clinical services with a recovery orientation
  • Discuss individual care and systems of care from a recovery-oriented perspective, including innovative practices to better serve individuals
  • Understand opportunities for recovery-oriented organizational change and supportive leadership practices specific to making organizational change
