Recovery

"Recovery is the process of pursuing a fulfilling and contributing life regardless of the difficulties one has to face. It involves not only the restoration but continued enhancement of a positive identity and personal meaningful connections and roles in ones community. Recovery is facilitated by relationships and environments that provide hope, empowerment, choices and opportunities that promote people reaching their full potential as individuals and community members". DBH/MRS RAC 2006

Recovery Management

The provision of engagement, stabilization, education, monitoring, support, and re-intervention technologies to maximize the health, quality of life and level of productivity of persons with severe alcohol and other drug problems. Within the framework of recovery management, the "management" of the disorder is the responsibility of the person with the disorder. The primary role of the professional is that of the recovery consultant.

Recovery-oriented Systems of Care

Health and human service institutions that affirm hope for recovery, exemplify a strengths-based (as opposed to pathology-focused) orientation, and offer a wide spectrum of services aimed at support of long term recovery from behavioral health disorders.

Referral

A formal process linking a person to an appropriate service(s) to address the client's identified needs.

Residential Treatment Services

Comprehensive mental health treatment services for children with severe disturbances or mental illness. These services are provided in Residential Treatment Facilities (RTF's), which must be licensed.

Resilience

Resilience is a protective process which enables us to reach good outcomes even though we have endured significant adversities. Resilience is a common phenomenon arising from ordinary human adaptation and strength. It is a dynamic process that can change across time, developmental stage, and life domain. All children, youth, adults, families and communities have the capacity to demonstrate resilience. There are many factors that enhance a child’s resilience pathway including: positive relationships with caregivers, peers, or a caring adult; internal strengths such as problem-solving skills, determination and hope; and environmental factors like effective schools and communities. With these types of strengths, supports, and (at times) services, we can bolster our capacity for resilience, manage challenges, and successfully reach developmental or life stage milestones as healthy and productive members of society.

Resource Coordination (RC)

A case management model that is typically a 9-5:00 service Monday through Friday with no mandated "after hours" capability and is provided to individuals 18 years or older who fit within the prescribed "medical necessity criteria" as defined by OMHSAS.
