Tennessee Recovery Navigators

Resource Description

Tennessee Recovery Navigators are people in longterm recovery who meet patients who have recently overdosed in the Emergency Department and connect them with the substance abuse treatment and recovery services they need. Navigators maintain a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS) Certification in order to use their lived experience to help others find recovery. In total, the TN Recovery Navigators have worked with 2,275 patients from 77 Tennessee counties since the program began (through 12-31-19).
