RecoveryOhio is working to provide a full continuum of care to all of Ohio. RecoveryOhio’s goals are to create a system to help make treatment available to Ohioans in need, provide support services for those in recovery and their families, offer direction for the state’s prevention and education efforts, and work with local law enforcement to provide resources to fight illicit drugs at the source.
Effective strategies to reduce the prevalence of mental illness and addiction conditions and decrease adverse outcomes require a full continuum of care, including health promotion, evidence-based prevention and treatment, and recovery resources to support healthy living.
The RecoveryOhio Advisory Council and the RecoveryOhio State Team are committed to addressing the unique needs of all Ohioans. In preparation for this report, the RecoveryOhio Advisory Council spoke about two “specialty” populations: individuals involved in the criminal justice system and youths.
Finally, the RecoveryOhio Advisory Council met and discussed data, outcomes measurement, and the need for multisystem connections to create a behavioral health service delivery system in line with the needs of all Ohioans.
