What is Indiana Access to Recovery (INATR)?

Indiana Access to Recovery (INATR) is a four year federal grant awarded in October 2010 to the Division of Mental Health and Addiction (DMHA) by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT). INATR assists clients who want to get in recovery from substance use problems and disorders or need assistance maintaining their recovery. INATR pilots a recovery-oriented approach to care and helps clients gain access to a network of clinical, community and faith-based organizations who provide treatment and recovery support services to eligible individuals.

The goal of INATR is to provide a continuum of recovery services, regardless of where the person is in their recovery. The first step is to connect the client to a Recovery Consultant (RC) of their choice who will coordinate services in cooperation with the client, whether the services are funded by INATR or free in the community. The RC assists the client in developing a personal recovery plan and schedules meetings to discuss plan progress and needed modifications.

What is Recovery-oriented Care?

Recovery-oriented care uses a holistic approach to helping people with substance use problems and disorders. It considers all aspects of the individual affected and provides a menu of services that can help address any barriers on their road to recovery by leveraging free or low-cost federal, state, and community services, including those funded by Indiana Access to Recovery (INATR). This approach builds on client strengths and addresses needs in a comprehensive way. A recovery-oriented system: 

  • Is person-centered
  • Is inclusive of family and other allies
  • Is anchored in the community
  • Is strengths-based
  • Is responsive to personal belief systems
  • Offers integrated services
  • Incorporates ongoing monitoring and outreach
  • Is culturally responsive
  • Offers peer recovery support services
  • Provides individualized comprehensive services across the lifespan

INATR is a client choice program. This means that the client decides and designs the recovery plan that best fits them. The client will work with the RC to evaluate strengths and identify barriers to recovery. Next, the client will develop a personal recovery plan with the RC to address these barriers. INATR can fund clinical treatment on a limited basis, as well as appropriate recovery support services.

What Services are Available to INATR Clients?

In addition to connecting clients to free or low-cost community resources, RCs will help clients gain access to services funded by INATR, including:

  • Recovery consultation
  • Clinical assessment
  • Outpatient treatment groups
  • Individual addictions treatment
  • Integrated treatment of co-occurring disorders
