When a person in Tama needs drug abuse treatment but doesn't have private health insurance or the money to pay for the recovery program in full, the Access to Recovery Voucher is possibly an alternative to look into. ATR is a federally-funded plan which provides the means for qualified people to access addiction treatment programs and services including inpatient programs, regular outpatient, intensive outpatient, counseling, continuing care, recovery and life coaching, skills building, vocational training, and transportation assistance. The ATR grant program allows those individuals with vouchers to purchase treatment and recovery support services for addiction disorders at the provider of their choice. To qualify for ATR individuals must fulfill certain criteria, including: 1) must be 18 years or older, 2) have a history of substance abuse and addiction, 3) have an annual income that is below 200% of the Federal poverty level, and 4) reside in the counties or jurisdictions that provide ATR.
People interested in the Access to Recovery Voucher can consult with ATR Service Coordinators in their area. If the person's initial choice of treatment or facility isn't working out, they can consult with their coordinator to locate one that best fits their needs and that accepts the ATR.
