4th Judicial District Recovery Services, Inc.

In 2013 the 4th Judicial District Recovery Services, Inc., “4JDRS”, was formed as a 501(c) 3 organization to assist the Fourth Judicial District Recovery Court in achieving its mission. .    Today, “4JDRS” also supports the Fourth Judicial District Veterans Treatment Court, as well as partnering with other groups and agencies in our communities to provide much needed services to address both the individual’s and family’s drug and alcohol addiction and co- occurring mental health issues.

2014 was a big year for us as the “4JDRS” became a State of Tennessee licensed Treatment Provider for individuals suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. Also, we purchased a beautiful home set on 18 private acres that allows us to offer our treatment services plus transitional housing to females.

Just recently, H.E.A.L. of Sevier County (“H.E.A.L.”) , a group of dedicated professionals, joined our organization. “H.E.A.L.” seeks to address the drug and alcohol addiction epidemic with a particular emphasis on helping women addicted to drugs to deliver drug-free children.
