About the RSS Access Site

The Recovery Support Services (RSS) Access Site program is a collaborative effort between recovery support providers and other community-based supports designed to meet the unique recovery needs of adults with substance use disorders.

The program provides vouchers that are used to pay for services at ten approved recovery support providers.

Recovery support programs offer recovery support services such as care coordination, spiritual and group counseling, life skills training, recovery coaching, recovery housing, and transportation assistance.  These services can be offered before, during, after, or independent of substance use disorder treatment and are provided by an organization certified by the Missouri Department of Mental Health, Division of Behavioral Health.

These services are offered in a variety of settings including, but not limited to: community support groups, faith-based organizations, and peer recovery groups. Recovery support programs are person-centered and allow individuals the opportunity to direct his/her recovery process.

RSS Access Sites screen, assess, approve, and create recovery support service vouchers authorizing services at Department-approved RSS Providers for residents of Missouri eighteen (18) years and older with a substance use disorder.  The RSS Access Site provides individual choice of service provider and functions as the individual’s advocate resolving disputes between individuals and RSS Providers.
