WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?
Colusa County Recovery (CCR) was founded on the principles of people helping people. We consider our free online digital recovery and wellness resource to be a valuable addition 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.
"Our first 9 months online, you could have heard a pin drop," says Susan Wagenaar, the site's founding volunteer. "This year the site has taken off like a rocket ship on a mission and, we could not be happier!"
"It's an amazing feeling, to be in a recovery meeting online, and hear a first time attendee introduce themselves as Mike or Sarah from Colusa, or receive an email, from a site member, who has one year sober, and earned the trust of their spouse back," says Wagenaar. "You can't put a price tag on that kind of wonderful."
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.
