Susannah’s House recently contacted us about a new FREE program they are offering to mothers. Please see below on the information about the program offered. If you have any questions at all, the contact information for Sarah Jones with Susannah’s House is at the end of the blog! We are proud to watch this great organization grow and help mothers in need!
Susannah’s House is a loving, non-judgmental place where mothers can find hope and healing from addictive issues and life’s hurts, habits, and hang-ups! Childcare is lovingly provided while mothers are in the day treatment program.
Who Can Come?
- Pregnant mothers who are struggling with addictive issues.
- Mothers in ongoing recovery from substance abuse and have completed an alcohol and drug assessment and have followed its recommendations
- Mothers that have children with the Department of Children’s Services (DCS) due to family substance abuse
- Mothers that have had children under the jurisdiction of the court system due to parental substance abuse
Basic Recovery Program occurs on M, W, F from 10 am-2pm, and lunch is served at no cost.
Susannah’s House is located at 923 Dameron Avenue (about 2 minutes from the Knoxville DCS Office) and is designed to be a safe haven for the entire family to heal and grow. The facility is designed for classroom programs for adults; art, movement and music therapy for children and counseling areas for recovery and life skills. We have a FABULOUS facility, with a fenced in playground/pavilion/basketball court…feel free to come by and check it out!!
We want to help mothers:
-Understand how their past does not have to be their future
-find support from other women with similar circumstances
-get help with GED or job training (we have an awesome computer lab to help with this)
-find a path to freedom for addiction through day treatment
-understand and find help with legal problems involved with family issues
We have immediate openings at this time, but will be limiting our groups to 10 participants. Once a waiting list has been activated, we will look at adding more class times and services. We have been receiving several new referrals, and can schedule intakes for anyone interested immediately.
