Join us Thursday, August 31, 2023 at 7 pm for our annual Overdose Awareness Night at Hope Church parking lot 8500 Walnut Grove Road. We will remember and honor those we have lost with a bell ringing and a candlelight vigil. Please bring your own bell, we will provide candles. We will also have a table to display your angel’s framed photos (please bring with you and pick up at the end of the event. We are also collecting new or gently used shoes to donate to our participants on Friday nights.
As the first official Syringe Services Program (SSP) in West Tennessee, A Betor Way is excited to announce that a free, harm reduction needle exchange will be in operation every Friday from 6-9 PM year round! We are located at 1070 Sycamore View Road – Sycamore View and Shelby Oaks behind the Shell Station next to McDonald’s. Not only does this provide an opportunity for people to gain access to clean, unused syringes, it is a place to connect with other resources, learn about possible treatment options, and even get a wound or health assessment without judgement or fear plus a hot meal!.
Did I mention that everything is also FREE??? Thanks to generous donors and partnerships with SOR (State Opioid Response), Catholic Charities, VA Nurses, Friends For Life, CAAP, and more, we are able to offer all of this at no charge to anyone!
We are open rain or shine, so please come by and see our friendly staff if you or someone you love has a need. We are also looking for volunteers interested in learning more about A Betor Way and SSP’s and will have sign-up sheets available.
