AAIR is a statewide substance abuse treatment and recovery support program administered by the California Rural Indian Health Board, Inc. (CRIHB). They work to empower American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) people in California to break the cycle of drug and alcohol addiction and achieve long-term recovery.

AAIR is funded through a grant by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and administered by the California Rural Indian Health Board. AAIR is part of a larger, national Access to Recovery initiative created to give people the ability to choose services that meet their unique individual needs.

AAIR believes that AI/AN communities in California have the knowledge and capability to identify needs and solutions to substance abuse problems within their own communities. AAIR supports this work by coordinating a network of community-based providers to help individuals and families access high quality treatment and recovery support services. In addition, AAIR has committed over $14 million dollars to pay for people to receive treatment over the first three years of our program. AAIR administers funds to pay for some or all of the cost of treatment.

AAIR is dedicated to improving the health and vitality of our communities by making substance abuse treatment and recovery support services accessible to the people who need them most. We are committed to supporting our people on their path to recovery through a holistic approach to treatment. Their mission is to help our clients overcome the barriers that make accessing treatment difficult and sometimes impossible to achieve, by:

• Helping AI/AN people take advantage of the wide variety of available secular, spiritual, and faith-based treatment solutions.
• Creating options that allow people to independently select from a statewide network of native and non-native providers.
• Providing access to recovery support services that may not otherwise be available, including transportation to and from treatment, child care services, and traditional healing activities.
• Supporting each person throughout their recovery process by identifying barriers to treatment and helping people overcome them.
• Paying for substance abuse treatment and recovery support services when no other sources of funding are available.

South Coast Recovery is approved as a AAIR provider.

We are here for you 24/7.

AAIR & South Coast Recovery

WHAT IS ATR?

On January 3, 2003, President Bush proposed a $600 million program to help 300,000 Americans receive treatment for drug and alcohol addictions through a new program called ATR – Access to Recovery. In 2004, the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) released the initial announcement calling for ATR grant applications.

WHAT IS CRIHB?

The California Rural Indian Health Board (CRIHB) was among 44 states and 22 tribes and territories to apply for an ATR grant , showing there were approximately 627,000 American Natives in California of which 88,000 were in need of substance abuse treatment and recovery support services. However, only 18,000 actually received the needed services. As a result of this major treatment gap, CRIHB proposed to supplement services with a new statewide system to increase access to recovery.

HOW IS SOUTHCOAST RECOVERY AFFILIATED?

This is where South Coast Recovery comes in. We are pleased to announce our affiliation with AAIR – The Access to American Indian Recovery program launched in 2005 by CRIHB in response to the tremendous need for recovery in native American Indian and native Alaska tribal communities.

AAIR is dedicated to improving the health and vitality of native communities by making substance abuse treatment accessible to the people who most need them. South Coast Recovery is dedicated to helping make that possible through offering its services as a premier California alcohol & drug rehab center.
