Welcome to Maryland RecoveryNet
A four-year, $13 million Access to Recovery III grant has been awarded to the Maryland Alcohol and Drug Abuse Administration (ADAA), the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH). The grant from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is expected to annually serve up to 2,500 adults who are returning to their home communities after completing residential addiction treatment.
Maryland’s Access to Recovery (ATR) initiative, known as RecoveryNet, began in February, 2011. After qualifying to receive benefits, individuals will be able to use RecoveryNet vouchers to purchase a variety of services. These can include supportive housing; extended residential treatment in halfway houses; pastoral and family counseling; care coordination; transportation to and from treatment and recovery support services; and job readiness counseling from a menu of eligible community and faith-based providers.
The state will receive $3.2 million in each of the four years this grant money is available. Access to Recovery is a presidential initiative that provides vouchers to individuals to purchase services and supports linked to their recovery from substance use disorders, and is designed both to increase an individual’s access to support for recovery from addiction and to build recovery support networks within communities.
