There is now an opportunity for women in recovery to choose housing that is safe, clean and with others who are also in recovery.  It is not a half-way house or treatment, but a living arrangement where a group of women in recovery agree to a set of guidelines that will continue to promote conditions that will promote their sobriety.  

They are in need at this time of household items: furniture, dishes, etc.  Monetary donations will be helpful as well.  Contact our office if you can provide any of these items.  Read the press release announcement about the opening. 

If you know of woman who has at least 30 days sobriety and is looking for a structured, safe and sober environment with like minded women share the application below with them.  Applications can be faxed to 423-722-4898 OR be dropped off at the Insight Alliance office

Managing Alcohol Outlet Density to Reduce Youth Access to Alcohol    
Date: Thursday, September 20, 2012
Time: 3:00-4:15 p.m. ET

We will show the webinar during our regularly scheduled meeting. Meeting Location is Trinity Church on Univ. Pkwy in Johnson City We will be projecting to watch together.  

PLEASE arrive by 2:45 and join us afterwards for a brief discussion about what this means in our community.  

Speakers: · Michael Sparks, President of Sparks Initiatives and Diane Riibe, Executive Director of Project Extra Mile

Alcohol outlet density regulation is a science-based environmental strategy used to reduce or limit alcohol outlet density through licensing or zoning processes. Research has shown a strong correlational relationship between alcohol and violent crime. Research has also shown that when outlets are close together, more underage drinking occurs. By controlling the location of outlets, sales to minors can be discouraged and youth safety can be improved. Presenters will share information about regulatory strategies utilized in communities to manage alcohol outlet density in order to limit youth access to alcohol and improve public health, safety, and well-being by impacting crime rates, victimization, personal injuries, and fatalities. Presenters will also share information about useful resources to aid implementation of these types of efforts.

FOLLOWING THE MEETING we want to hear reactions and have some discussion about what this means in our community.  We will dismiss at 4:45.  

To ensure there are enough seats.  PLEASE RSVP to Joan 877-366-7593 - press "zero"
