  • It is a concept distinguishing between services delivered by providers who make recovery-oriented or treatment decisions for the recipient of the services (provider-centered) vs. services delivered by providers where the recipient of the services make recovery-oriented or treatment decisions for themselves, with the provider as a trained guide (person-centered). It is a very important and real distinction that makes a difference in one’s healthcare, whether it be mental or physical health.

  • Neesa has hit on some very good tensions. As an ED for a peer run organization that provides Peer Support in a drop in center environment AND traditional treatment services such as case management, mental health assessment and psychotherapy, this article hits on some very practical ethical considerations that our practice deals with as well. However, we have found that when both disciplines are using the Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC) model, it helps tremendously to see the NASW ethical boundaries as a healthy guideline to ensure that the agency is providing person-centered services, with peers stating their recovery goals and providers coming alongside the peer to help them work on those goals.
