Access to Recovery

According to the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health, over 20 million people need -but do not receive-treatment for illicit drug or alcohol use. To help close this treatment gap, President Bush has implemented an ambitious new program that increases the availability of treatment services in the United States and helps free drug addicts from the disease of addiction.

Launched in 2003, the Access to Recovery (ATR) program provides vouchers for treatment services as well as recovery support services. For the first time, Access to Recovery expands treatment options by including faith and community-based providers. In so doing, clients can choose a treatment program best suited to meet their unique needs. Congress has appropriated $300 million in funding for ATR over three years. More
