Access To Recovery Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers In Alabama
Since 2003, SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) has been running the Access to Recovery program. An initiative of the last Bush administration, the Access to Recovery program seeks to make treatment for drug and alcohol addiction affordable for those who need it. The Access to Recovery program provides those who need it with vouchers in order to pay for community-based treatment programs. The benefit of the Access to Recovery program is that not only does it make treatment affordable; it is designed so that you can have the best treatment for your needs. Clinical treatments, as well as recovery support services, are funded under the Access to Recovery Program. Clinical treatment includes individual counseling, screening, group counseling, treatment for medical disorders and medication-assisted therapy. Certified practitioners provide all clinical treatment services.
Recovery support services are commonly provided by volunteers and paid staff within the community. Most often they are peers of those seeking recovery who can support those looking to live a drug and alcohol-free life. Recovery support services also include help with finding employment, housing support, family support, transportation services, and self-help and support groups. If you feel that you are struggling with alcohol and/or drug addiction but have put off seeking help because of the expense, we urge you to find out more about the Access to Recovery program.
