Project S.A.A.F.E. (Sustain an Abuse Free Environment) was formed in 2015 after concerns arose about the impact of opioids on the community of Fulton County. The vision for Project S.A.A.F.E. is to promote education, treatment, and recovery of drug and alcohol misuse to build a safe Fulton County Community
The coalition holds monthly meetings (1st Wednesday of every month) at the Fulton County Medical Center.
The Project S.A.A.F.E. Three Year Strategic Plan was developed using the ideas and suggestions that were generated from the Project S.A.A.F.E. 2017 strategic planning workshop, and goals were created by the coalition’s leadership. Goals of the strategic plan are listed below.
In 2020 the Fulton County Family Partnership undertook an extensive project to identify and implement ways to stem the scourge of substance addiction (and particularly opiate addiction) in Fulton County. This effort included a broad-based community survey as well as creation of a strategy document, Addressing the OUD/SUD Crisis in Fulton County through Strategic Marketing. Information about the results of the community survey and the strategies recommended may be found on the FCFP Plans and Studies page.
