Project TAUBAH supports SAMSHA’s Recovery Orientated Systems of Care (ROSC) guidelines which provides clear policies for recovery.  We are collaborating with SAMSHA, IRETA, Boston University, National Institute of Muslim Human Service Practitioners, DOCCS (MFVS), Crisis Recovery Network LLC., MAAWS, Dutchess County Jail and other entities to expand services in this region, especially in underserved rural, and blighted urban areas, which may benefit from our programs and services.

It is our intention to motivate and educate using the guiding principles that emerged from the 2004 SAMSHA Summit which are “broad and overarching; they are intended to give general direction to SAMHSA/CSAT and other stakeholder groups in the treatment and recovery field guidance toward operationalizing recovery oriented systems of care (ROSC) and developing core measures, promising approaches, and evidence-based practices.

The following is a training video for reentry concerns, and recovery advocate trainings:

It would be helpful to watch the video and then read the following principles and ask what is my duty as a provider?  The following principles helped SAMSHA summit participants define the elements of recovery-oriented systems of care and served as a foundation for the recommendations to the field contained in Part III of the National Summit on Recovery Conference Report.”[1]

Following are the 12 guiding principles identified by participants (Halveston & Whitter, 2009)

  1. There are many pathways to recovery;
  2. Recovery is self-directed and empowering;
  3. Provider Approaches to Recovery-oriented Systems of Care: Four Case Studies
  4. Recovery involves a personal recognition of the need for change and transformation;
  5. Recovery is holistic;
  6. Recovery has cultural dimensions;
  7. Recovery exists on a continuum of improved health and wellness;
  8. Recovery emerges from hope and gratitude;
  9. Recovery involves a process of healing and self-redefinition;
  10. Recovery involves addressing discrimination and transcending shame and stigma;
  11. Recovery is supported by peers and allies;
  12. Recovery involves (re)joining and (re)building a life in the community; and Recovery is a reality.
