Our Programs

Families Free is a local non-profit organization celebrating its 15th year serving the community. We are a licensed treatment and mental health provider through the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.

Through our programs, residential recovery services, and our commitment to community partnerships and justice systems, we emphasize teaching vital life skills through individual and group intervention and evidence-based curriculum promoting healing and restoration.

Healing Families

Parents and Child Together (PACT) provides vital support to women with drug-exposed infants up to age 8 through intensive outpatient and community-based programs. PACT focuses on nurturing the parent-child bond, offering tailored programming and resources for parenting, housing, employment, and mental health needs.
