    The purpose of the current article is to highlight the potential of a care coordination model in promoting interagency collaboration when designing recovery-oriented services. The authors argue the case using exemplars from the literature and lessons learned from Australia’s Partners in Recovery initiative. Interagency collaboration is paramount when designing a recovery-oriented service system. A care coordination model has the potential to overcome most challenges that preclude implementation of service system integration. Although the care coordination model is relatively new in recovery-oriented services and effectiveness studies of this model have yet to be undertaken, the model has the potential to be a viable alternative to service system integration.
