Hamilton County Coalition's Nu-Start Program Expands To All 10 Counties in Region III South!

"The highly successful Nu-Start Program of the Hamilton County Coalition is expanding its reach beyond Hamilton County to cover the entirety of the Department of Mental Heath and Substance Abuse Services region 3 South (Hamilton, Bradley, Polk, McMinn, Meigs, Rhea, Bledsoe, Sequatchie. Grundy and Marion counties).



Nu-Start is not an in-house treatment facility, but its services center around connecting individuals who have recently experienced a non-fatal overdose, as well as other individuals at high-risk of overdose to treatment, recovery and harm reduction resources. This expansion is necessary to address a surge in individuals in need that have emerged since March 2020."
