Outcomes and Impacts
People can recover from substance addiction, and ATR helps.
How has ATR helped individuals in recovery?
ATR involves each participant in the planning of their recovery goals and provides care coordination and support for basic needs the entire time they are in the program, removing obstacles to recovery with a low per participant cost of less than $2000 on average. After just six months in ATR, the greatest measurable areas of impact show that nearly all ATR participants are able to maintain abstinence from drugs or alcohol, have no new involvement in the Criminal Justice System, have an increase in housing stability, high levels of employment and feel better about their quality of life.
Involvement in ATR’s Career Building Initiative program gives participants job readiness/employment training services that often open doors that were not previously available or considered.
Death from overdose is extremely rare for ATR participants while in the ATR Program (<1%).
At the six-month discharge from ATR, nearly all ATR participants have successfully maintained abstinence from drugs and alcohol.
Increase in the percentage of participants securing employment while in ATR.
The majority of ATR participants successfully complete the training.
At discharge from ATR, fewer participants are dependent on Public Assistance.

Increase in the number of participants owning or renting their own apartment, room, or house while in ATR.
At the six-month discharge from ATR, nearly all ATR participants had no new arrests or new connections with the criminal justice system.

Meeting basic needs and spending a little time can make a huge difference.
ATR provides transportation passes to enable participants to access recovery support services offered by ATR and outside recovery support providers. Participants are also able to keep appointments with probation, doctors, counseling, job training, and other basic needs that may be pivotal to their recovery.
