This paper reviews the policy environment surrounding recovery support services (RSS), the needs to which they should respond, and the status of current recovery support models. It concludes that RSS should be further assessed for effectiveness and cost-effectiveness, that greater efforts must be made to develop the RSS delivery workforce, and that RSS should capitalize on ongoing efforts to create a comprehensive, integrated and patient-centered health care system.
