Altarum Wins $7 Million Contract to Provide Technical Assistance to the Access to Recovery Program
Date:10/2/2007

Program provides broader, patient-centered treatment choices to those

dealing with substance use disorders

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Altarum Institute today announced that it has been awarded a $7 million contract to provide technical assistance to the Access to Recovery program (ATR), administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The contract, with two additional option years for another $10 million, is the largest health care award ever received by the nonprofit institute.

"The Access to Recovery program is a prime example of why taking a systems view matters in the delivery of health care services," said Altarum CEO Linc Smith. "ATR is a holistic, systems-based approach to recovery from substance use disorders. ATR puts patients at the center, giving them the tools and the power to make informed choices about which providers offer the services that will best suit them and best equip them to live productive lives in the community."

The ATR program begins with the understanding that substance use recovery is not a linear event. It can involve relapses and other setbacks. Individuals often need to move through different phases of care during their healing, including acute clinical treatment, rehabilitation and maintenance programs. The program offers vouchers to clients so individuals can seek the form of treatment that most meets their needs.

"ATR helps empower patients from the very beginning in the fight for their life. Access to Recovery provides individuals the flexibility to find their own path to recovery," said SAMHSA Administrator Terry Cline, Ph.D.

ATR also fosters other systems-based change, including greater collaboration across government and other agencies that interact with people dealing with substance use disorders, including government departments of justice, corrections, employment, c
