In October 2010, the Washtenaw Community Health Organization (WCHO) moved to a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC) for the delivery of Substance Abuse Treatment Services.  In order to deliver the ROSC services, the WCHO identified three core providers.  Two in Washtenaw County, Dawn Farm and Home of New Vision and one in Livingston County, the Livingston County Community Mental Health Authority (LCCMHA).  The Core Providers have the primary responsibility to assess, determine, offer and/or deliver substance abuse (SA) services for the Livingston/Washtenaw Coordinating Agency catchment area. 
The purpose of the Core Provider system is to ensure individuals receiving services have a consistent point of contact throughout their recovery process. The simplified process will enable them to connect with the core providers directly.
Individuals being referred for Substance Abuse services will become members of one of the Core Providers.  If the individual is from Livingston County they should contact LCCMHA.  If the individual is from Washtenaw County, individuals will become a member of one of the Core Providers based on their birth month.  To help streamline this process for individuals requesting services, below is the chart identifying the provider that will be responsible for which months along with the phone number for each Core Provider for making referrals. 
Dawn Farm
(734) 669-8265
Home of New Vision
(734) 975-1602
Livingston CMH
(517) 546-4126

The goal of ROSC is to ensure that the appropriate intervention is utilized based on the members readiness for that intervention.  Clinicians will be determining the service based on the individuals readiness for change and offer services to match their readiness such as discovery groups, engagement groups, individual therapy or recovery services. 
In the ROSC system, if a higher level of care for a service is needed, in Livingston County LCCMHA will be contracting directly with providers to deliver the services.  In Washtenaw County, if this higher level of care is needed and it is not available within one of the Core Providers, the Core Provider will contact the WCHO who will retain the contracts and the service will be authorized.

Oversight of Prevention Services are provided through the Washtenaw County Public Health Department. Providers deliver services to priority populations through the use of evidenced-based programming (link to CSAP - central substance abuse prevention) a division of SAMHSA. Services are provided across both counties and in a variety of venues; such as schools, community coalitions, after-school programming and other community sites. Its mission is to provide county citizens with the tools and means to make healthy choices and to mitigate the effects of challenges to their health.
Strategic Prevention Framework
The Livingston Washtenaw Substance Abuse Coordinating Agency (CA) received a Michigan Department of Community Health/Office of Drug Control Policy Strategic Prevention Freamework State Incentive Grant (SPF-SIG) to address the federal initiative of reducing underage drinking. This process involved bringing together community stakeholders to form a Community Epidemiological Workgroup (CEW) to examine data that identifies contributing factors and conequence of use factors. Alcohol related crash deaths was selected by the State as a key indicator for consequence of use. The CEW also found that traffic crash data was also a key indicator in our region. "Underage and Under the Influence" Chartbook 2008 presents the results of the data reviewed by the CEW. The CA has convened a Community Strategic Prevention Planning Collaborative (CSPPC) consissting of members of the CEW and others to continue to review ongoing data, programming needs and make recommendations to the Substance Abuse Advisory Council and the WCHO Board. The CA has designated Dexter and Pinckney communities as the leads in developing and implementing a community wide approach to reducing underage drinking.
