No-cost Services

In addition to inpatient and outpatient services that require payment, Peninsula offers several no-cost programs for community members.

Independent Living Program

The Independent Living Program provides emergency financial assistance to persons diagnosed with a mental illness. An application providing financial information is required and must be assessed and approved by the program coordinator.

Peer Support Academies

Peninsula’s Peer Support Academies are peer support centers offering support for hundreds of individuals in Blount, Knox and Sevier counties. Men and women age 18 and older who have a mental illness are eligible to apply to participate in the program.

Recovery Link

Recovery Link is designed to bridge the gap between addiction and recovery by connecting people who suffer from addiction to treatment programs. The program serves East Tennessee residents, and will assist anyone, free of charge, in finding the treatment program that is right for them.

Support Groups

All support groups meet at the Peninsula Lighthouse campus at 1451 Dowell Springs Blvd. in Knoxville unless otherwise noted.

Women in Treatment

The Women in Treatment program is appropriate for uninsured women age 18-64 who suffer from addiction. Priority placement is given to pregnant injecting drug abusers, pregnant substance abusers and injecting drug users. The women must be uninsured or have exhausted available insurance benefits.
