 ROSI Survey - Recovery Oriented Systems Indicator Survey

​The ROSI​ Survey measures respondents’ perceptions of Virginia Community Services Board (CSB) service providers’ orientation towards recovery. Originally developed through a national research project sponsored by the Federal Center for Mental Health Services, in Virginia the oversight, analysis and data reporting for the Survey is provided by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.

In Virginia Beach, the ROSI Survey is given by Peer Recovery Specialists and overall Survey data is compiled by a Peer Recovery Specialist. The questions are organized within eight Domains: Meaningful Activities, Basic Material Resources, Peer Support, Choice, Social Relationships, Formal Services Staff, Formal Services, and Self/Holism. Analytical results are based on a four-point scale with “4” being the highest possible score. The anonymous Survey is given every other year, with the most recent being completed in 2015, reflecting the time period of July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015. The forty-two questions were answered by 111 individuals receiving CSB services.
