The Mission of Community Recovery Services

Community Recovery Services (CRS)

provides counseling and treatment services in residential and outpatient settings for individuals and families who experience life difficulties associated with substance abuse. We are treatment professionals dedicated to working together with clients to rebuild lives through personal empowerment, enhanced relationships, and community contribution.

Community Recovery Services

provides outpatient and residential drug and alcohol treatment and counseling services at 6 facilities in both Santa Cruz and Watsonville. All programs are licensed by the State Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs and monitored by the Santa Cruz County Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs.

Low Cost, High Quality Care

Community Recovery Services addresses the therapeutic and educational needs of individuals and families throughout Santa Cruz County who are experiencing life difficulties associated with drug or alcohol use. We provide professional, low cost, high quality services that are sensitive to a wide variety of client needs and are utilized by a large referral network. Services are targeted at populations that might otherwise be under served, such as Latinos, women, and criminal justice system referrals. CRS serves 2,500 individuals annually.

Change requires a strong foundation

CRS staff assist individuals and their families in working toward life-long recovery from alcohol and other drug dependency. We believe recovery requires behavior change. The foundation of that change is based on hard work and responsibility.
