Recovery Support Services (RSS)
Recovery Support Services promote client engagement in the recovery process and provide services needed for support of continued recovery. Recovery support services are initiated with the client at the earliest possible point in the individual planning and service delivery process. Ideally, recovery support services are identified at the outset of treatment as part of the development of the individual treatment plan. Organizations collaborating in order to provide recovery support services should maintain continuing communication in order to fully assess the effectiveness of on-going services and to determine if additional services are needed. State-Funded Recovery Support Services are:
Family, Marital and Life Skills
Alcohol and Drug Testing
Adult Staffed Safe and Sober Housing
Clients are eligible for Recovery Support Services for up to 12 months following the successful discharge/completion of a clinical treatment episode. In the event of relapse during a clinical treatment episode or recovery support services an individual will remain eligible for all services; however they will be referred to a higher level of care or regressed within their current level of care as appropriate based on provider assessment. In the event there is a transfer to another level of care from recovery support services or within a clinical treatment episode the client will be a priority referral.
The State voucher program is a collaborative effort between recovery support service providers and clinical treatment providers designed to facilitate access to community-based treatment and recovery services that are tailored to unique needs of individuals with substance use disorders. The clinical substance abuse treatment service provider will conduct a client assessment that includes the need for recovery support services. When recovery support services planning indicates the need for services or supports, the case manager or treatment provider will be responsible for follow-up after the initial recovery support service is provided in order to:
Maintain the continuity and coordination of needed services.
Determine with the client whether further services are needed.
Offer or refer to needed additional services, when possible and according to client preference.
