All individuals—regardless of condition, disability, or circumstance—have the right to pursue fulfilling lives in their communities. The Office of Recovery Transformation (ORT) helps make that possible. We work with providers and community partners to infuse Georgia’s behavioral health system with an array of clinical and nonclinical services and supports that make treatment more recovery-oriented. Ultimately, we aim to empower individuals to define and sustain recovery, wellness, and independence in their communities.

Our long-term commitment is to transform our behavioral health system into a recovery-oriented system of care (ROSC). This means that—together—we must continue to build a person-centered, strength-based continuum of care that promotes the right of all individuals to pursue their dreams. In addition, we must attend to the needs of the whole person, not to just their diagnosis or disability. So ORT aims not only to empower individuals using the behavioral healthcare system, but also to strengthen their families, environments, and communities.
