Arkansas ATR is a grant-funded initiative which provides vouchers to clients for purchase of substance use disorder clinical treatment and recovery support services. The goals of the program are to expand capacity, support client choice, and increase the array of faith-based and community based providers for clinical treatment and recovery support services.
The Arkansas Department of Human Services will use ATR III grant funds to provide vouchers that Arkansans will be able to use to receive treatment and support services through community-based/faith-based organizations in 13 Arkansas counties: Benton, Craighead, Crawford, Faulkner, Garland, Independence, Jefferson, Lonoke, Pulaski, Saline, Sebastian and Washington and White counties. Each patient will have a care coordinator to assist them in accessing needed services.
The program will serve adults who are:
- members of the Military/Arkansas National Guard/Reserves or are returning combat veterans;
- persons with multiple DUI/DWI offenses;
- pregnant women; or
- adults in families with (or at risk of) involvement with Arkansas DHS child welfare Divisions of Children and Family Services (DCFS) or Youth Services (DYS).
Funds will support medical and dental care, addiction and mental health treatment services, child care, drug-free transitional housing, life skills training including employment, parenting, and financial management services, peer coaching and other recovery services.
Arkansas ATR is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Treatment.
