Wayne County Recovery Coalition


Wayne County, Georgia faces an Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) crisis and layers of barriers toward alleviating the crisis.  General access to healthcare, and especially access to addiction treatment and recovery services, is a challenge for Wayne County residents.


Local addiction treatment services are under-equipped to provide evidence-based treatment services to those suffering from OUD.  Work needs to be done in the areas of prevention, treatment, and recovery in order to address the county’s OUD problem.

Vision Statement:


The WCRC envisions Wayne County as a safe and healthy place for individuals and families because of its comprehensive, community-driven strategies that reduce and prevent substance use disorder, provide needed treatment resources, and promote long-term recovery.

Planning Values

The Wayne County Recovery Coalition seeks to address the stigma surrounding OUD/SUD in Wayne County through education and advocacy. Each meeting is centered around how to make Wayne County a place where those who suffer from OUD/SUD have access to prevention, treatment, and recovery resources.
