Founded in 2015, the mission of the National Sobering Collaborative is to identify, develop, and disseminate translational research, best practices and policies, and education towards the formation and sustainability of sobering centers for the care of individuals with harmful substance use. Sobering centers offer a targeted, compassionate, non-punitive alternative care model to jail and the emergency department for adults who are intoxicated. We are a committed, grassroots organization looking to improve engagement and options for those with substance use disorders. Our work aims to help communities utilize a harm reduction approach to create a system of care that effects systematic and individual change.
Since inception, our Collaborative has been run by a volunteer Board of Directors. With the support of a family foundation grant received in spring 2022, we are hiring our first Executive Director.
