CoRR – Who We Are

Who we are…Celebrating 40 years providing services in the Sierra Nevada community:

CoRR is a non-profit community benefit organization, with a mission to “Reduce the social, health, and economic impact on our families and children due to all types of substance abuse”.  Established in 1974, CoRR has evolved and expanded to address community needs; we are now a nonprofit serving 2,000 clients and their families each month with substance abuse, mental health treatment and prevention programs. We serve Placer and Nevada County with service sites in Kings Beach and Truckee, Grass Valley, Auburn, Lincoln, and Roseville.  CoRR employs qualified, trained, licensed and credentialed staff, overseen by a CEO and volunteer Board of Directors.


What we do:

CoRR provides an array of integrated, individual and family-centered services to address substance abuse and related behavioral health issues, focused on outcomes of long-term individual and family recovery, contributive citizenship, and family functioning. Services include outpatient counseling (adults and adolescents), education classes, including DUI, detoxification and residential treatment, transitional housing, child development programs, and ancillary services including anger management, parenting classes, and life-skills. Utilizing a continuum of care we engage individuals at the earliest signs of problems (Schools, DUI and drug diversion) and integrate them into our more intense services as assessed and needed. We work closely with county and court personnel to ensure all those needing services are easily brought in to our programs.


Who we serve:

CoRR serves individuals and families throughout Placer and Nevada counties.  Our programs are competent and welcoming for people of all demographics:  men, women, teens, those with co-occurring mental health disorders, varied socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. We demonstrate cultural competence through staff training, and maintaining staff that reflect the population we serve, including bilingual, bicultural staff.


Why we serve:

We recognize that there is possibly no greater threat to health, safety, and well-being than substance abuse and its related behavioral health issues. CoRR staff and volunteer Board are dedicated to the health and safety of our communities, to promoting a  vibrant community where families can thrive, and that is why we deliver effective, evidence-based programs and services to treat substance abuse and related behavioral health disorders.


CoRR embraces a whole-person approach in treating substance abuse, related addictions and associated behavioral issues. with a primary focus on the family system. This holistic approach to recovery and wellness means offering our clients a full range of services to support complete and enduring recovery. We offer a high quality, structured, personalized array of services to each client, and their family. In collaboration with each client, an individualized treatment and wellness plan is developed to create the greatest opportunity for success.


Our Events:

Our events are about raising funds so families can recover, get back on their feet, and give back to their community, and about celebrating recovery.


Our fundraisers are fun and welcoming. All events have Board Committees working alongside with staff, volunteers, and alumni of our programs to plan and implement.

National Recovery Month ~ September 2014: In its 25th year, Recovery Month promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance use disorders. This year’s theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out,” encourages people to openly speak up about mental and substance use disorders and the reality of recovery, and promotes ways individuals can use to recognize behavioral health issues and reach out for help. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover. Watch for news on our event in September!
