SMART Policy Network

SMART Policy Network

The Substance Misuse and Addiction Resource for Tennessee (SMART) Policy Network aims to assist Tennesseans affected by substance misuse and transform the University of Tennessee’s approach to combating the current opioid epidemic.

The SMART Policy Network was created in response to the growing physical, mental, economical and societal toll substance misuse is taking on Tennessee. To address the need for greater collaboration across substance misuse-related research projects and community outreach programs, the group plans to provide evidence to communities and decision makers on best practices by delivering written reports, directed consultations and public forum presentations.

SMART Policy Network is a collaborative effort involving thought leaders from multiple units across the UT System as well as the ETSU Addiction Science Center, the state judicial system, private treatment providers, the Knox Metro Drug Coalition and many others.
