COMMUNITY RESPONSE TO PROMOTE ONGOING RECOVERY

Presenter: Robert Carty, LCSW, CADC, CJJP

Traditional treatment programs are often limited in their ability to offer comprehensive services over an extended period of time for the people they serve who experience substance use and/or mental health disorders. In the past decade, a new model has emerged called Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC), which involves community partners working together to promote ongoing recovery. These networks have been developed in various parts of the country, connecting such systems as treatment providers, housing, public health, employment, criminal justice, child welfare, and veteran services. In this workshop, we examine the advantages of the ROSC model and explore the possibility of creating a ROSC for Lake County and other participants’ communities.


For forty years, Robert Carty LCSW, CADC, CCJP has participated in the behavioral health profession in various roles- counselor, supervisor, trainer, mentor, administrator and board member. Earlier this year, he retired from his position as the Director of Clinical Services in the Chicago facility of the Hazelden-Betty Ford Foundation. Previously, he coordinated Grant Hospital’s Clinical Training Program for Addictions Counselors; worked as a Deputy Director at Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities; served as the Program Coordinator of Harborview Recovery Center and started his own consulting company. In 2011, the Illinois Certification Board presented him the Professional of the Year Award. Since his retirement, he continues to provide training events throughout Illinois.
