Fulton Resources Recovery

Project S.A.A.F.E. (Sustain an Abuse Free Environment) was formed in 2015 after concerns arose about the impact of opioids on the communities in Fulton County. The coalition holds meetings monthly at the Fulton County Medical Center. The Project S.A.A.F.E. Three Year Strategic Plan was developed using the ideas and suggestions that were generated from the coalition. Goals in the strategic plan include: 

  • Reduce stigma in Fulton County to zero by increasing community awareness about addiction, overdose, treatment, and recovery resources.
  • Expand and sustain capacity for treatment and recovery initiatives.
  • Develop and implement a data collection and research plan.
  • Implement a 24/7 warm hand-off.
  • Increase access and utilization naloxone to save lives.
  • Educate individuals and families about addiction and overdose, particularly those at high risk, and all persons in contact with high risk individuals and those with an Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) or addiction.
