WE ARE MAKING AN IMPACT | PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?
Colusa County Recovery (CCR) was founded in December of 2020 on the principles of people helping people. We consider our free digital recovery platform and companion recovery discussion group on Facebook (Clean and Sober Nation) to be valuable additions to our rural community's existing TOOLBOX of available services that address substance use disorders.
Our mission is to build bridges that connect people to innovative recovery options, evidenced-based therapies, wellness principles, and mutual aid organizations; where they can get the help, support and guidance necessary, to begin their journey of healing and restoration.
Through targeted communications, free recovery resources, peer support, dynamic content, and social media engagement, CCR is successfully reaching individuals within Colusa County, and neighboring communities through their smartphones, computers, and tablets, 24 hours a day - 7 days a week.
We embrace all gateways to recovery and wellness.
We envision a healthy, safe, and resilient community model.
We support an atmosphere of inclusion, open communications, and engagement with key community stakeholders.
We recognized the inherent value of technology to reach individuals and community members at risk.
We are autonomous, pragmatic, and hold ourselves to the highest standard.
CCR is comprised of volunteers, who are passionate about helping others break FREE from the chains of addiction.
If you believe, as we do, that our 24/7 recovery and wellness digital platform is benefiting our rural community and neighboring cities? We would love to talk with you about sponsorship. Please reach out to Susan Wagenaar, through our website's contact page.
We also accept contributions through PAYPAL (the donation button is below) and through our DONATION PAGE.

For the longest time I believed I needed alcohol because it somehow made me a bigger, better, bolder, version of myself. It was a magical band-aid that HEALED MY INSECURITIES and transformed me into a confident, go-getter, who was the life of the party. It made me feel wittier and prettier... UNTIL it didn't.
Instead of completing me, alcohol depleted me and nearly destroyed my life.
It manipulated my dopamine 'loving' brain into believing that I needed it (and other drugs) to feel GOOD about being, ME. Alcohol is a liar.
