About The Center
The Substance Awareness Center of I.R.C. was founded in 1989 as a resource for information and referral, and has expanded the services offered as the community need has increased. We have embraced two positions - Prevention Works! and Recovery Works!
Prevention Works! For over a decade the Center has provided all public, middle school students a nationally recognized, evidence based, prevention curriculum. The Center also offers both group and individual outpatient counseling for adolescents and their families.
Recovery Works! The Center now operates two houses for women in recovery. Services include housing, outpatient counseling, drug testing, and support.
The Center receives funding from grants, foundations and donations, and operates under the direction of a volunteer board of directors. General board meetings are held monthly and are open to the public.
