"To all the Davids out there, keep fighting Goliaths and believing in yourself." 

 — S.M. Wagenaar, Founder of Colusa County Recovery and Clean and Sober Nation

At Colusa County Recovery, we're not just fighting Goliaths, we've built a fortified sanctuary, where thousands have found hope. Here, amidst the struggles, you'll meet Davids with fiercely bright lanterns, illuminating the path to recovery and guiding others out of the shadows.

This year, our group is committed to dispelling the myths and stigma surrounding addiction, replacing old belief systems with understanding and a shared vision of hope, through a network of advocates, and diverse recovery voices that make up our community's support model.
Together, we are proving that even the fiercest Goliaths tremble before the power of recovery's might, and the resilience of a community committed to supporting one another.

Join us on this noble quest as we rewrite the narrative, one story of triumph at a time. Together, we will watch darkness dissolve into hope, and Davids rise, not just victorious, but transformed into productive members of society, who lead others into recovery's transformative light.
