Access to Recovery (ATR)
The Access to Recovery (ATR) program is funded by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). With support from SAMHSA, Washington State’s Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery is moving toward Recovery Oriented Systems of Care.
Washington State ATR is administered with six county partners: Clark, King, Snohomish, Pierce, Yakima, and Spokane. The purpose of this three-year grant project is to provide recovery services to qualifying individuals and their families to help them become productive members of their community. This program is designed to help people reach recovery in body, mind, and heart.
ATR is based on the knowledge that there are many pathways to recovery from substance use. The promise of this initiative - founded on a belief in individual choice - is ensuring that a full range of treatment options are available, including the transforming power of faith.
Once a client is assessed and a recovery plan established, the client can choose any authorized recovery provider for each service identified. Funds for these services are reserved for this person/family member using a voucher.
Some examples of the recovery services available are: mental health counseling, preventive services for client family members, transportation, transitional housing, child care and job readiness/vocational counseling. Providers can be traditional or faith-based.Directory of County Contacts
