Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) banner

About BRSS TACS

BRSS TACS advances effective recovery supports and services for people with mental or substance use disorders and their families.

Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) supports programs, systems, states, territories, and tribes as they implement effective recovery supports and services for children, youth, families, young adults, adults, seniors, and other diverse populations with mental or substance use disorders.

SAMHSA founded BRSS TACS in 2011. The SAMHSA Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) and the SAMHSA Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) co-manage BRSS TACS.

The work of BRSS TACS is enriched by the lived experiences of people in recovery, who play key roles in BRSS TACS project leadership, development, and implementation.
