Scottish Drugs Forum is working with Angus ADP to support continuing development of the Recovery Orientated System of Care (ROSC) in the region.

A ROSC can be defined as a system of services, supports and other resources in a community, which provides for the range and stages of need people may have during the process of recovery from problems related to the use of alcohol or other drugs. Any service or resource could potentially be a part of a ROSC if it provides assistance to people within the service user group (including family members and significant others).

With the publication in late 2018 of Scotland’s new strategy Rights, Respect and Recovery: Scotland’s strategy to improve health by preventing and reducing alcohol and drug use, harm and related deaths, there is a renewed emphasis on the importance of ROSC as a necessary framework to support the recovery of people affected by drugs and alcohol in localities.

ROSC development is clearly linked to the Scottish Government's quality framework, in that the Quality Principles and the new Health and Social Care Standards should underpin quality expectations and any associated performance reporting activity, e.g. for ADP-commissioned services.

Consultation work is being carried out with staff and service users across a range of local services. This is looking at the range of current service provision which people affected by drugs and alcohol can access; how services work together for the benefit of service users; and looking to identify any areas for further development and improvement which could be progressed locally, with a view to informing subsequent ADP-wide ROSC development.

Angus ADP has arranged an event to bring local ROSC partners together to consider the current status of Angus ROSC, based on the consultation feedback, and identify development priorities to help inform the ADP’s decision-making on future developments.

Who is the event for?

Any services and resources working with people affected by alcohol and other drugs in Angus. This will include a variety of statutory and third sector services and not only traditional alcohol and drugs services.
