Substance Abuse & Restorative Justice in Alabama

19 of the over 500 counties in the United States that support the Step Up Initiative are in Alabama. Instead of incriminating those with substance abuse problems, the Step Up initiative encourages these counties to provide access to counselors and treatment for those who suffer from mental illness. By connecting a therapist or counselor with the inmate, these counties are prioritizing a system of restorative justice that focuses on addressing the role of  mental healthcare, and exploring potential treatment pathways beyond incarceration. You can find a list of institutions in Alabama that have received funding to develop the Step Up program and provide case management services, here.

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse in Alabama, contact the ADMH Substance Use Disorder Helpline at 1-844-307-1760. This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you are LGBTQ+ and you need support, contact The Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386.

Something to know about my approach is:

I'm honest. I want to work with you, not for you, which means I often ask you to work on things when we aren't meeting so you can get the most out of this experience. I want to work myself out of a job and help you become the person you want to be.
