The Recovering Communities of Step Ahead (RCOSA) Welcomes You!
We are an organization that, since 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 20 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.
John Meissner CADC has been in the field of recovery and has been a counselor for over 30 years. He has been dedicated to helping RCOSA’s residents since 1996.
Nick Benedetto CADC has been working with RCOSA since 2009 and brings to RCOSA over 16 years of experience in this field.
We welcome you to our Community.
