Healthcare Access Maryland to Rename Access to Recovery / State Care Coordination Department

The Access to Recovery/State Care Coordination Program Changes Its Name to Recovery Care Services

Baltimore, MD — On Wednesday, October 1, 2014, the Access to Recovery (ATR)/State Care Coordination Department will officially become Recovery Care Services. Federal funding for the ATR program ends on September 29, 2014.

Recovery Care Services will continue to provide crucial care coordination services to Baltimore City, Baltimore County, and Anne Arundel County residents engaged in substance abuse treatment.
HealthCare Access Maryland (HCAM) Care Coordinators connect these individuals to community resources that support their completion of treatment for substance use disorder. Such resources include assistance with health insurance enrollment as well as referrals for legal assistance, mental health services, job readiness programs, public housing, and more. HCAM Care Coordinators follow up with each client at least twice a month to adjust care plans and track client progress.

Thanks to continued support from Behavioral Health Systems Baltimore, Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Behavioral Health Administration, Baltimore County Department of Health, and Anne Arundel County Department of Health, HCAM is able to identify and dismantle barriers that may stand in the way of the client’s continued success with their recovery.
