Outpatient Fees:
Consumers engaged in outpatient treatment in the Higher Ground Program may be eligible to have their services paid fully or in part by the Access to Recovery (ATR) federal grant. ATRfunds are limited per consumer and will only be applied if you, the consumer, choose to designate your ATR funds to pay for recovery support services while in treatment.

ATR funding and the extent to which funds will pay for services is based on availability which will be determined with each consumer at intake and throughout the treatment process.

If you have utilized ATR funding in the past it is possible that your funds have been partially or entirely depleted.

Higher Ground Recovery Center is contracted with the Missouri Department of Mental Health Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse (DMH) as an Access to Recovery RS Access Site and faith-based recovery support provider. All staff are qualified and meet DMH requirements for the ATR program. The Higher Ground program is a DMH certified Level II intensive outpatient clinical substance abuse program.
