In 2011, SAMHSA funded the Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) to promote the widespread adoption of recovery concepts and practices throughout the United States. BRSS TACS serves as a coordinated effort to facilitate the adoption and implementation of recovery concepts, policies, practices, and services, leveraging previous and current accomplishments by SAMHSA and other leaders in the behavioral health recovery movement.
Bringing recovery supports and services to scale requires a fundamental shift in perspective by States, Territories, and Tribal Governments to adopt and implement new approaches to policy development, funding, infrastructure, service design and delivery, and workforce development. BRSS TACS supports a series of activities to support these goals.
BRSS TACS is an important mechanism for coordinating and carrying out the work of SAMHSA's 8 Strategic Initiatives, most directly its Recovery Support Strategic Initiative. The Recovery Support Initiative promotes a high-quality, self-directed, and satisfying life in the community for all people in recovery, and includes Health, Home, Purpose, and Community.
