Why is this important?
Addiction has been on the rise.

People need to understand that these overdoses are not just happening in drug houses or in the alley. They are happening in middle to upper class neighbourhoods! We want to make a difference and help prevent this in Knoxville, TN.
The Mend House offers a high standard for a sober living community . All residents will have access to a licensed alcohol & drug counselor to assist them with addressing the consequences of their addiction.
We take great pride in equipping our men with the necessary strength-based tools needed to thrive in an environment that helps them make a full and successful transition back to independent living.
