Faith Based Initiative

Since 2002, SATTC Faith Initiative, "Let's Have the Conversation! One Voice: One Mission", has been dedicated to bridging the gap between community providers, and faith-based leaders in the southeast region. Through the facilitation of conferences, educational events, leadership academies, roundtables, and listening sessions, SATTC has been able to bring together interfaith leaders to discuss how to be a catalyst for change in their communities.

SATTC is committed and understands the importance of collaborating with and enhancing the knowledge and skills of faith leaders to help individuals suffering from substance use disorders (SUD).  SATTC invites faith leaders in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina to join us and become an integral part of the conversation on substance use disorders.


To provide technical assistance and training to faith leaders and communities of faith to increase the SUD workforce capacity within faith settings and develop multiple pathways to recovery and access to care.


  • Dialogue and strengthen the substance use disorder knowledge for people working in communities of faith.
  • Teach communities of faith how to be a catalyst for change in their communities.
