Here at WestCare Tennessee, we work every day to change the lives of people in our community. One of our many successes involves a woman in her forties who was previously addicted to heroin, fentanyl, and meth. When she first came to us, she was homeless, had no contact with family or friends, and was completely lost. After years of addiction and failed attempts at sobriety, she found WestCare. We referred her to a detox program that she successfully completed. Afterwards, she came back to us to participate in the TN Matters medication-assisted treatment program. She has been fully participating in both individual and group therapies and works with her case manager weekly to make drastic improvements in her life. She is no longer homeless and now has regular contact with her children. You can see the happiness in her face every time that she comes by. We are so proud of her and so happy that we are able to make a difference in the lives of clients like her.
