We are an organization that, since October of 1992, has been dedicated to providing recovering persons a safe, structured, supportive, and enriching post-treatment, community-based living environment- conducive for building a foundation for a Lifetime of Sobriety. 

We welcome anyone who has a strong and sincere desire to continue on the journey we know of as “Recovery”. 

Those who possesses the desire and the internal motivation necessary to be willing to learn and implement our New Design For Living will learn how to lead a self-directed plan of Recovery.

For over 27 years, RCOSA has provided recovering persons the opportunity for the attainment of higher levels of Peace, Serenity, Emotional, and Spiritual growth.

RCOSA offers Self-Help meetings, (utilizing our new design for living from: the 12 Steps & 12 Traditions, and the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous), Group, Individual, and Family sessions with experienced Certified Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors. 

RCOSA realizes and respects that AA and/or The 12-Step Model may not be for everyone, and it is in this light that RCOSA allows the resident room to find their own way to recovery within the structure and guidelines of our community. 

Willingness is the key, along with an open-mindedness, a resident can implement methods for accurate and honest self-appraisal- and begin to build a foundation for a lifetime of sobriety and good living.
