The Social Services System: Supporting Treatment and Recovery for Individuals and Families
A recovery-oriented system of care includes all sectors of society working together to support an individual's recovery. Social services are a critical link in this chain of support; they can help identify addiction, direct individuals to appropriate treatment services, and support those already in recovery. This program will examine ways in which social services effectively delivers assistance-via foster care, housing, job training, medical care, veteran support, for example-to those who need it, including the children and families of those with substance use disorders. The program also will offer tips on how to improve cooperation with other sectors of society.
