Buffalo Valley has been providing affordable alcohol/substance abuse treatment to patients in need for about 30 years now. Of those 30 years, I have had the privilege of directing that treatment for over 25 years. I am happy to say, more than 3,500 patients a year find their way to our doors. We are the largest TNCARE provider in the state for A/D services. I am even happier to report that half of those are still sober a year later.
In the last 14 years our treatment modality has included job training, job placement assistance, GED training, life skills training, case management, housing and, of course, state of the art counseling to those most in need.
Fourteen years ago, recognizing the great need for housing, we started another division in BVI called Valley Housing. Valley Housing has been very successful in offering affordable housing across middle Tennessee.
