Access To Recovery - Iowa

What is Access To Recovery?

Access to Recovery (ATR) is a four year grant funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment. ATR is a presidential initiative which provides vouchers to clients for purchase of ATR covered services. The goals of the program are to support client choice and increase the array of faith-based and community based providers. ATR - Iowa focuses on serving individuals in recovery from substance abuse.

ATR Announcements and Updates:
  • New The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Access to Recovery (ATR 4) project are pleased to announce that Iowa has been selected as an ATR 4 grant recipient. For more information, please click here.
  • New The new ATR 4 Provider Manual and Provider Application are now available. As done previously in ATR 3, we will be utilizing an enrollment period for providers to assist us in our recruitment efforts. This process will allow us to quickly develop a provider network for ATR 4, help us identify potential provider shortage areas, and determine Care Coordination sites and admission caps. For more information on when applications are due, please click here.
  • New In addition to the ATR 4 Provider Manual, a Services Crosswalk has been developed to explain differences between the previous grant and the new ATR 4 project.
  • The ATR 3 grant is scheduled to end on September 29, 2014. As a result, we are no longer accepting applications for new providers. Thank you for your interest and we hope that if a new ATR grant is released and we're awarded, you will consider applying to become part of our provider network at that time.
  • After June 30, 2014, the ATR 3 grant will no longer be enrolling new participants into the program. This is due to the lifetime of each voucher issued being 90 days, and the ATR staff not wanting to create a situation where an individual is able to start a service, but have to discontinue before completion.
