Services and Resources:

The Faith-Based Support Specialist (FBSS) Program is a free, ecumenical program that aims to equip senior faith leaders to reach their congregants and participate in improving the quality of life for their communities. The Agency for Substance Abuse Prevention has created, through the FBSS program, a certification backed by the Alabama Department of Mental Health (ADMH). To obtain certification, participants will attend a 16-hour program designed by the Agency for Substance Abuse Prevention to educate and equip pastors with the knowledge, tools, and resources to minister effectively to those dealing with substance use disorders. This program is sponsored by funding from the Foundation for Opioid Response Efforts (FORE).
