Access To Recovery III: Recovery Systems (ATR III)

The Missouri Department of Mental Health has been awarded its third Access to Recovery (ATR) grant, making treatment available to thousands of Missourians with substance abuse problems. The current grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is $13 million over a four year period, with $3.3 million available in the first year.

The new grant will target priority groups for clinical treatment as well as supports such as housing, employment and transportation. The priority groups are:

  • Veterans, including National Guard service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan
  • Offenders reentering the community from any Missouri Department of Corrections institution
  • Treatment courts (drug courts, DWI courts)
  • Other disadvantaged populations (as identified and defined in each local area)

The latest round of funding will be directed to treatment and support providers in the Southwest, Southeast, Kansas City and West Central areas of the state. With access to both treatment and recovery supports, the chance of recovery are greatly increased. The outcomes targeted under the ATR program include abstinence, stable housing, employment, improved social connectedness, and elimination of criminal activity.
