Grant program provides transition from addiction to long-term recovery in the community

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Arkansas is one of 30 states selected for a publicly funded grant for a recovery program to help residents transition from addiction to long-term recovery.

It affects hundreds of thousands of Arkansans every year and can impact the lives of everyone around them.

Addiction can be a life-long battle. But a special program is aiming to help those in drug treatment - reintegrate into communities, like yours.

270,000 Arkansans had a diagnosable substance abuse disorder last year, but fewer than 6 percent were able to access the treatment and recovery support services they needed. Thanks to Access to Recovery, though, now they can.

"It's a great opportunity for somebody who is struggling, who may have been self-medicating and now needs that opportunity to straighten their life back up," says Former Arkansas National Guard Captain Tanya Phillips.

High pressure keeps cold, dry conditions in Ark.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- High pressure will remain firmly in place as it positions itself over the forecast area Thursday.

Despite some high clouds streaming east southeast over the CWA skies will remain sunny throughout the day.
