Substance Abuse Solutions (SAS) works with individuals from entry into the program to stability in life; working with an individual for up to two years while in the program to help them get back what substance abuse stole from them.
Our goal is to be able to give someone hope, encouragement, direction, and a sense of belonging and acceptance. When enrolled, individuals will obtain a Peer Recovery Coordinator to guide them through the process and get them back on their feet so they can get out of the grasp of substance abuse.
In mid-2020, SAS entered into a partnership with the City of Cookeville to provide resources to individuals in need. This pilot program provides on-call service for Cookeville police officers 24/7 and assists individuals with housing, mental health services, substance use disorders, and other needs.
Since the program’s official launch in June 2020, the SAS team has worked with hundreds of individuals; connecting several individuals with a group home/halfway house program and assisting dozens with enrolling in a treatment program.
