The Tennessee Redline number (1-800-889-9789) is a toll-free information and referral line that provides accurate drug problem and other addiction information to all citizens of Tennessee upon request.
Treatment and other program referrals are made on the REDLINE. Callers are provided with at least 3 referral sources when possible. REDLINE staff does not do therapy or counseling with the caller or substance abuser, but gives them the information to put them in touch with someone who will provide a diagnosis, prognosis or assessment of the mental or physical health of the substance user/abuser. The REDLINE strives to provide the caller with specific referrals based on their stated needs.
Law enforcement vehicles are seen by all civilians at any given time or day. This makes them optimal resources for displaying the REDLINE number to everyone within their jurisdiction.
How can I do that?
Contact your local law enforcement agency to see if they can place stickers with the Redline number on their patrol vehicles.
