Big Country Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC)



Communities across the U.S. are recognizing the need to strengthen their recovery resources and build communities that support each person's recovery. In Texas, the Health and Human Services Commission is assisting communities in the development of local Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) coalitions to achieve these goals. Region 2 has developed two ROSC groups, one in Abilene and one in Wichita Falls.

Key principals for these groups include:

  • There are many pathways to recovery. Each person is unique with specific needs.
  • Recovery is a reality. It can, will, and does happen.
  • EVERYONE in our community is invited to participate. We want to include family members, community leaders, faith-based representatives, business owners, law enforcement, city and county officials, substance use and mental health providers, social service agencies, treatment providers, educators, health care providers and of course, people in recovery.
  • We want to identify what works and build on our strengths to make our community a place where individuals in recovery can make healthy choices and improve the quality of their lives.
Please contact Melanie Cheek at 325-673-2242, ext. 106 or mcheek@abirecovery.org if you would like to connect with a ROSC group in Abilene or Wichita Falls.
