The Alcohol and Drug Council of Middle Tennessee (ADC) was founded in 1966 by a group of recovering addicts and supporters whose approach included support, intervention, education, and prevention. ADC's programs fall into two categories: addiction & recovery support and prevention services. ADC has a history of providing services to low-income individuals with multiple barriers to substance abuse services.  ADC's mission - 'We offer solutions to those affected by alcohol and drug addictions'.   The grant will fund a portion of staff that provide services to youth who are at risk for drug and alcohol addiction and adults who need addiction recovery support.  35 out of 40 (87%) youth served will report an increase in at least two protective factors from substance abuse such as positive peer support, drug resistance skills, family connectivity and emotional support so that the likelihood of transition from drug use to drug abuse is reduced.   88 (50%) of 177 adults served will show improvement in two indicators of abstinence from substance abuse that include: family reunification, social re-engagement, employability, stable housing, engagement with a peer mentor and support group attendance at least three times a week.
