Tennessee Redline and Centerpoint Crisis Detox
This past week, East Tennessee Law Enforcement disrupted a large scale drug operation and arrested multiple individuals who were responsible for supplying large amounts of heroin and fentanyl in the Knoxville area, as well as doctors in the region who were inappropriately prescribing opioid pain medication. Due to this large scale take down, we wanted to share important information for individuals who may be seeking help or treatment options for dug addiction. These resources are available 24/7 and they can assist regardless of insurance. Addiction is a nasty disease and our Officers see it each and every day. Addiction does not discriminate; it strikes every race, gender and age. We care about our community and want people who are struggling with addiction to get the help they need.
