C.O.L.A. Support and Recovery Center has a unique way of managing and interacting with substance abusers during and after the recovery stage. Our model describes the process of recovery through spirituality - a concept that has many successes and few failures.


Substance abuse is widely recognized as a serious social and legal problem and the use of illegal drugs may be responsible for more than 25% of property crimes.


Affordable housing is a major component for a successful recovery program and as C.O.L.A. is working relentlessly to provide a transitional housing program.

Everyone is exposed to both risk and protective factors for substance abuse. The more risk factors a young person encounters, the more likely he or she will use harmful substances. However, the more protective factors a young person encounters, the less likely he or she will try alcohol, tobacco or drugs. 


We have a proven prevention plan available to help everyone that is suffering from the emotional pain of addiction.
