Office of Recovery
The Office of Recovery Services was created though a collaborative vision towards System Transformation. Community stakeholders identified the requisite to earmark resources that would focus on expanding and enriching Virginia’s recovery support services.
The Office of Recovery Services (ORS) is staffed with persons with lived experience and self identify as being in Recovery. ORS is represented on DBHDS’s Leadership Team and is involved in developing policy and plans that support a recovery oriented system of care.
