Idaho has recently been awarded the Access to Recovery IV (ATR IV) grant which is a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHSA) funded grant to provide substance abuse services to specific identified client populations. The purpose of this grant is to increase access to substance abuse services with an emphasis on a client centered approach and client choice in treatment services and planning.
ATR includes both treatment and recovery support services (RSS) to endure long-term recovery from drug and alcohol issues. RSS services are crucial to individuals to achieve and maintain progress made in treatment and to provide the extra support that they may need. The client will be issued vouchers to purchase approved ATR funded services.
More information regarding the specific populations eligible for ATR IV funding, how to access services, and program start dates will be posted in the future. In the meantime if you have any questions please feel free to contact Michael Bartlett, ATR Coordinator at (208) 332-7243 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
