During this time of social isolation it is important to remember people who are in the recovery community.  Anxiety and social isolation can be dangerous for people in recovery from mental health or substance use disorder.  If you are in recovery, reach out to your family, friends or sponsor. If you know someone, please reach out to them and see how they are doing. 

Note these online supports and hotlines that can help provide online or by phone.

This project is funded under a Grant Contract with the State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.

We hold regular meetings that are open to the public on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 3:30 PM at the Trinity Church on University Parkway in Johnson City, TN.

There are some expenses that grants don't cover.  If you want to support prevention in the community and region we would gladly accept any amount to support our efforts.
