Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care

BBHC is focused on ensuring our network becomes recovery-oriented. Through a Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) initiative, BBHC, DCF and all Managing Entities across Florida are involved in monthly phone calls and exercises to understand the current landscape for recovery and expand the knowledge base of recovery service approaches. ROSC is a system transformation initiative being led by Florida’s Department of Children and Families (DCF) to establish an integrated, values based recovery oriented system of care where recovery is expected and achieved through meaningful partnerships and shared decision making with individuals, communities and systems.

The ROSC framework has been supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to assist with the transformation of behavioral health service systems to a recovery orientation throughout the United States (SAMHSA, 2010). ROSC is designed for organizing and coordinating multiple services, supports and systems, and supports person centered, self-directed approaches to services.
To this end, DCF and the ME’s will be using the Self-Assessment Planning Tool for Implementing Recovery-Oriented Mental Health Services (SAPT): Version 2.0. The SAPT was originally developed at the University of South Florida (USF) Louis dl la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute (FMHI) under contract to Florida’s Medicaid authority, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). The tool underwent a recent adaptation which comes five years after the tool was published in 2011; it was revised to support the new Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC) Process in the State of Florida. The tool was disseminated to the ME’s in January 2017 and is attached below for reference.

BBHC is working with the State and the CQI Committee to determine implementation of the SAPT Tool.
