Illinois Recovery-Oriented System of Care (ROSC) Councils



IDHS/SUPR changed its name from the Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (DASA) to the Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (SUPR). Supporting the commitment of the Division for prevention of, and recovery from, substance use disorders, SUPR has made progress in reorienting the system from focusing solely on the traditional acute care approach to a chronic care approach and embracing a recovery-oriented approach. Long term recovery from substance use disorders is dependent upon a continued connection to care and the delivery of services that are not only responsive to individuals’ use of alcohol and other drugs, but their co-occurring trauma effects, mental health, physical health and ongoing recovery related concerns as well.


ROSC is a coordinated network of community-based services and supports that is person-centered and builds on the strengths and resiliencies of individuals, families, and communities to achieve recovery and improved health, wellness, and quality of life for those with or at risk of substance use disorders. The central focus of a ROSC is to create an infrastructure, or “system of care”, with the resources to effectively address the full range of substance use problems within communities. The goals of the Illinois ROSC include:   

  • Building a culture that builds and nurtures recovery
  • Building capacity and infrastructure to support a recovery-oriented system of care
  • Developing commitment to implement and sustain a recovery-oriented system of care 

ROSC Councils

  In addition to developing a statewide ROSC, SUPR has implemented local ROSC Councils in eight communities through its Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care - Illinois Statewide Network (ROSC-ISN) program.

 This program:

  • established networked, geographically distributed ROSC Councils;
  • assists communities with building local recovery-oriented systems of care and that can network with the statewide ROSC;
  • builds collaborations in their communities that connect everyone who can support recovery;
  • includes local hospitals, primary care, mental health, law enforcement, local business owners, local government representatives and policy makers, persons with lived experience and SUD intervention, treatment, prevention and recovery support service providers.
