Burke Substance Abuse Network (BSAN) is a coalition of providers, support groups, related agencies and other stakeholders who come together to:  (a) network; (b) identify gaps in service; and (c) strategically plan responses to community needs as they relate to the reduction of substance abuse and use in youth, young adults, their families, and all citizens of Burke County, NC for long term community health.

BSAN is creating a vibrant, recovery-oriented Community of Care in Burke County by inviting a wide array of community resources to join together to create more options for treatment and recovery support services for every individual and family who needs help. This means public and private sectors working together with law enforcement, educators, business and civic leaders, and the faith community—collaborating with human service agencies, medical, pharmaceutical, treatment and recovery fellowships.

BSAN is facilitated and managed by Burke Recovery, a non-profit substance use treatment and prevention provider serving the residents of Burke County, NC.

BSAN Partners share in the leadership of the coalition through a Leadership Team comprised of nine nominated leaders.  In addition, multiple sectors of the community are represented in the membership, including:   

  • Youth

  • Parents

  • Business

  • Media

  • Schools

  • Youth-Serving Organizations

  • Law Enforcement
