The Mission: Drugs has become epidemic
in the Appalachian area. Of One Accord
works alongside groups like Stand in the Gap
Coalition ( www.SIGCO.org
) , Expecting Godís Help, the Hawkins County Anti-Drug
Coalition but also sponsors a drug recovery program in
Hancock County called The Mission. The Mission
which meets on Thursdays are now in their new
location, (The Arts Council Building) and has an
average of 35 residents that attend seeking recovery.
Over 70 people have been sent to long term rehab,

gotten jobs and have returned to society. There
is no simple solution for this problem but Of One

community with dignity and the love of Jesus.
