Description

TAADAS advocates for meaningful and appropriate access to high quality addiction care and the tools to achieve these goals. Currently, TAADAS is concerned with the need for more state-funded substance abuse treatment options to serve those without any source for accessing recovery. We support both providers and consumers with these efforts, striving to influence and shape the available delivery system of health care services. In support of these goals, TAADAS secured an advocacy grant from the Healing Trust which will enable stronger more collaborative approaches. TAADAS monitors state and national policies on addictions, co-occurring, prevention, and recovery-support services. If TAADAS determines the treatment and recovery communities are or will be negatively affected by existing or potential legislation or policy initiatives, we strive to reach out to our collaborative partners to address any barriers to service. Often, TAADAS is the voice for those who can no longer speak for themselves or who have simply given up on receiving help for substance use disorder or mental health treatment services.

Public Health

The dramatic achievements of public health in the 20th century have improved our quality of life in a myriad of ways, including an increase in life expectancy, worldwide reduction of infant and child mortality rates, and the elimination or reduction of many communicable diseases. In Middle Tennessee, improvements in preventive medicine and advanced medical technology have resulted in increased life expectancy and improved health for many residents. However, significant health disparities exist in our region, resulting in poor health status often related to economic status, race, and/or gender.

Addiction & Substance Abuse

For every $1 spent on addiction treatment, $12 are saved on future social, medical and criminal justice costs. Yet addiction recovery services for low-income and uninsured people are provided primarily by nonprofit treatment centers dependent on funding through competitive grants, private donations and modest payment by patients. These centers are always busy, and patient waiting lists are long.

Youth Violence

In Tennessee, gang presence has been on the rise since the late 1980s and early 1990s, when gangs first made a concerted push into the state. Since 2011, police have identified at least 5,000 gang members in Davidson County, and gang-related crimes have increased by 25%. Meanwhile, cities with 50,000 or fewer inhabitants have seen gang-related crimes triple in frequency nationally since 2005.
