In partnership with the New Jersey Coalition for Addiction Recovery Support (NJ-CARS), the Center for Prevention and Counseling has formed a committee to rollout the Trauma-Informed, Recovery-Oriented System of Care (TI-ROSC) toolkit developed by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing.

Applying a trauma-informed approach to a recovery-oriented system of care operationalizes two models that have overlapping shared values and principles to improve the health and wellness for individuals with SUDs. TI-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 improved health, wellness and quality of life for those with or at risk of substance use problems.

This system of care also recognizes the widespread impact of trauma, understands trauma’s connection to addiction and understands potential paths for recovery; recognizes the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff and others involved with the system; and responds by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures and practices and seeks to actively resist re-traumatization.
