S2L Recovery is excited to announce that we are now licensed by the TN Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
We are proud of all the work our members have put forth to achieve this goal, as it was previously thought impossible for a Christ-centered recovery program to become a licensed facility.
Our executive pastors have been working toward this licensure process since God put it on their hearts at the 2018 vision case retreat.
The road through the licensing process wasn’t smooth. In fact, there were a number of costs that are typically difficult for a nonprofit to absorb:
- Hiring a clinical/medical director
- Installing a sprinkler system/septic system
- Paying a consultant
- Required policies and procedures.
Although these challenges were steep, removing Jesus’ name from our recovery program simply wasn’t an option. It was thought that bringing in the clinical and medical world would necessitate His removal, but we received some very good advice:
Hire a clinical and medical director that loves Jesus and has the same philosophy as you.
And that’s exactly what we did. Our clinical and medical directors share the same Christ-centered focus that drives our program at S2L Recovery.
A Message From Our CEO Adam Comer
"When God called us to this trailblazing adventure it seemed impossible. As we were obedient in marching towards it, God kept reminding us that He was God. So many mountains throughout this process became molehills."
Obtaining our license from the state of Tennessee is an incredible milestone for this ministry. Combining the teachings of a Christ-centered recovery program with the clinical and medical world creates a unique and special facility.
We hope to spread the capabilities this combination will afford us. We have kept diligent records of the process that took us here. It is our goal to train other Christ-centered recovery nonprofits to achieve licensing and put an end to this addiction epidemic.
