Office of Recovery and Resilience


The Office of Recovery and Resilience (ORR) works to ensure that people who have mental health and addiction histories have a strong voice within the state behavioral health system. We believe that:
  • People are able to attain a full and meaningful life of their own choosing.
  • Behavioral health services provide valuable recovery tools under the direction of the person seeking recovery.
  • Each person defines his or her own recovery. 
  • Peers are the experts on their own lives and the services that most benefit them. 

For this reason, the office serves as a conduit for peers to help shape behavioral health policy and service delivery.

The ORR Promotes Recovery

Recovery is not a dream; it is wholly attainable and is the expected outcome of a system that fully responds to the needs and directives of those it serves. Self-determination is a core element of recovery. When people direct their treatment, they direct a critical part of their lives.

A chief goal of the office is to be a cornerstone for systemic change in reshaping policies and service delivery toward a recovery-oriented system of care. We strive for services to be more welcoming and fully honor each individual’s dignity.
