COPS was founded in 2002, as a program that incorporated spirituality into substance misuse which, assisted individuals to become stable in their recovery.

In 2009 COPS became a certified outpatient treatment program.

2011 we opened our first transitional house for men so they did not have to return to the drug environment and have a more successful recovery. In 2014 the second men's transitional house was opened and in 2017 the third house for men was opened.  

Spirituality is the foundation of this program. 

The  members of the coalition come from all walks of life.

What We Believe

 -    COPS

Our Background

A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.                                                                                                       SAMHSA 2011.


A Distinct Stage Of Development

As we go through any process in life we go throuch phases. Substance recovery is no different. It is a healing process: being restored to a former or better state. 

After the dependence, which can be physical or psychological, is behind us we must begin to put our life back together positively. Spirtituality is a major part of the recovery process. 

A healthy and balanced body, mind and spirit is being well.

​COPS goal is to assist the indiviual in their recovery process that help them in becoming a productive member in their community.
