Missouri's Access To Recovery 4: Coordinated Recovery (ATR 4)


The Missouri Department of Mental Health has been awarded a fourth Access to Recovery (ATR) grant, making recovery available to thousands of Missourians with substance abuse problems. The current grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is $7 million over a three year period, with $2.3 million available in the first year.

The new grant supports community service agencies, including peer and faith-based organizations, that reach out to individuals and families struggling with substance use disorders and provides the tools needed for long-term recovery.

The latest round of funding will be directed to established coalitions in Kansas City and in the Southwest, Southeast, and West Central areas of the state. With access to both treatment and recovery supports, the chances of recovery are greatly increased. Recovery support providers serve low-income adults with substance use disorders.   Priority will be given to:  (1) offenders on probation and parole beginning community supervision; (2) African Americans; and (3) women.  An array of recovery support services will address important recovery domains including abstinence, wellness, stable housing, employment, spirituality, positive social connections, and crime-free lifestyles.
