$600K Towards Alcohol and Drug Prevention
San Antonio, Texas: The San Antonio Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (SACADA) is pleased to announce the award of a Building Communities of Recovery (BCOR) grant through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). This $600,000 grant ($200,000 a year for 3 years) is to mobilize resources within and outside of the recovery community to increase the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery support from substance misuse and addiction.
SACADA supports and enhances recovery-focused community efforts through Project Recovery Texas, a state-wide program that provides peer-to-peer services for individuals with substance use disorders. Through the provision of community-wide training and outreach to promote and educate the community about recovery, Project Recovery Texas also aims to remove negative attitudes and stigma against individuals struggling with the disease of addiction.
“It is a privilege and an honor to serve our San Antonio community. We have an amazing team of passionate individuals that are dedicated to impacting people’s lives.”, stated Abigail Moore, SACADA’s Chief Executive Officer.
Since it’s formation in 1957, SACADA has been a leader in providing substance abuse prevention, intervention, and recovery support. In 2016, SACADA served over 80,000 children and adults in and around Bexar County. For more information about SACADA’s Intervention, Prevention, and Recovery Services, visit www.sacada.org.
