Gratitude and Giving go hand in hand

December 2, 2013

Every year about this time, we’re presented with countless opportunities to give. As we gathered to give thanks on Thursday, some of us celebrated in the homes of family or friends. Others shared fellowship with recovery family and friends.

Either way, gratitude for new lives in recovery and hope for those still struggling was in our hearts and minds. But what if there was a day specifically designated to give a gift of hope?

This year, December 3rd has been declared to be Giving Tuesday . . . a day defined by kindness, compassion, and generosity. By giving today, you are partnering with CoRR to help families recover and thrive.

Tell everyone you can about how you give and why it matters, and join a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.

Coat drive benefits more than 400 community members

November 24, 2013

In the spirit of giving this fall season, we would like to give thanks to the many community members who made the Warm Hearts & Hands Coat Drive an absolute success!

With labeled collection boxes stationed throughout the Western Nevada County area, several hundred cold-weather clothing items were donated for this year’s collective effort. At the helm of these collection efforts were the Salvation Army, Sierra Nevada Children’s Services, and CoRR. Staff and volunteers from these organizations joined together with schools, businesses, and local organizations to distribute more than 400 coats  as well as hats, scarves, and gloves to local residents.

This FREE community coat drive was spread out over three days from November 5th through November 7th at three local distribution sites.  This free service was anonymous and welcoming as community members from all corners of Western Nevada County were invited to claim a coat of their own.

We want to take the time to thank the volunteers who transported, cleaned, and organized coats.

CoRR Campus Announces Capital Campaign

October 16, 2013


This fall,  Community Recovery Resources (CoRR) is celebrating the 1 year anniversary of the Campus, and the success of the initial phase of the capital campaign for developing this beautiful resource.

Grass Valley—The corner of Sierra College Drive and East Main Street in Grass Valley has the highest traffic count in Nevada County. Close to the hospital, Sierra College, Nevada Union High School and BriarPatch Co-op, thousands travel the intersection daily. On one corner sits a new set of buildings, the innovative flagship of Community Recovery Resources (CoRR). It is here that over 2,000 individuals a year will recover from substance abuse and related mental health challenges, visit their primary care physician, attend health and well-being classes, or obtain pre-employment drug testing.

Having opened in autumn of 2012, The Campus is bringing recovery to Main Street. A $9.3 million dollar loan provided by USDA allowed CoRR to construct the buildings. Now the community is invited to help support The Campus and all the services it provides.

“We’re excited to be offering a full array of out patient programs, detox, residential treatment and transitional housing, child development and drug testing.” says Warren Daniels, CoRR’s CEO. “Now we’re equally excited to announce our Capital Campaign, which will help pay for the buildings housing on-site services taking place within this full spectrum community wellness facility.”

To date, more than $2.3 million dollars have been pledged by local citizens dedicated to supporting services to help resolve what has been identified as the largest challenge facing Nevada County. Another $400,000 was donated by the local contractors who constructed the project. Many donors emphasize they’re not only motivated by the opportunity to alleviate suffering, but also by the economic benefit that the project drives as reduces burden on public systems and taxpayers, and returns individuals to productive  citizens.

“In a 2011 survey of community leaders, substance abuse and mental illness were named as the largest issues facing Nevada County,” states retired Judge Al Dover, who saw first hand the devastating effects of alcohol and other drugs as five generations of addicts paraded through the courts. “I didn’t need to be told of the devastation. I saw it every day in my courtroom.” He continues, “The community has really stepped up to help alleviate the suffering that faces these individuals and their families. As CoRR’s Capital Campaign Chair, I’m proud to be a part of it.”

In making  this announcement of their Capital Campaign, CoRR is hoping to reach those who have not yet been invited to tour the facility and learn more about the programs housed within. Interested parties are invited to contact Deputy Director Ariel Lovett to arrange tours and obtain more information about making a gift to the campaign. “We’re in the process of designing our Donor Wall and want to make sure everyone with interest has the opportunity to get their name up there.”

The Campus was in the planning stages for years.

Fall colors at The Campus ~ Grass Valley

At that time Community Recovery Resources (CoRR) was a relatively small non-profit providing the majority of substance abuse education and treatment services in Nevada County.

When the CoRR Board of Directors and staff read the Grand Jury report they realized they needed to formulate a response as comprehensive and complex as the problem, finding a way to provide more efficiency and better outcomes to those accessing substance abuse and mental health services. They needed to identify all of the places traditional treatment was failing—the places people were slipping through the cracks or failing to access services in the first place—and remove identified barriers or place safety nets under places one might fall out of recovery.

Barriers to Treatment

A major barrier to treatment was the stigma attached to substance abuse and mental health issues. Another was literally being unable to get to services because they were not available in Nevada County or were not located in a single welcoming, dignified, convenient, accessible location. The ability to pay for treatment can be overwhelming and navigating financial assistance is difficult. Moms often had to choose between treating their illness or keeping their children with them.

Barriers to Successful Recovery

In Nevada County there were no detox services available, much less connected to treatment services, so if one successfully completed detox they were congratulated and wished luck—both in connecting with a recovery program with an open bed and in affording it. Families in recovery were provided disconnected services in disparate locations all over the state. Families were not taught about the disease of addiction and how best to support their loved one in recovery. After one successfully completed a residential treatment program they were often relegated back to the same situation that may have led them to seek services in the first place– a dysfunctional family situation, an abusive partner or their drinking buddies. Untreated co-occurring mental health disorders were not being addressed.

A New Model

CoRR began to rethink the traditional model of treatment, recognizing that 70% of those suffering with a substance abuse diagnosis also had diagnosable co-occurring mental health disorders, ranging from mild to severe. It simply wasn’t working to address one without the other. Families needed to be engaged as a whole, whatever that family unit might happen to look like, and services had to be accessible through a variety of funding sources; public, commercial and private pay. The 2005 Grand Jury Report identifying the unsustainable effects of drug abuse to our community was the catalyst that prompted CoRR to design The Campus, a comprehensive substance abuse and mental health treatment facility unlike any in the nation.

We invite you, if you have not already, to be part of this solution, and consider a donation to the Campus Capital campaign. Check out this short and beautiful 9 minute DVD to learn the story.

Community Recovery Resources celebrates local artists at The Campus ~ Grass Valley

October 16, 2013

With support from the Pioneer Arts Council, AsiF Studios, CoRR connected with local artists who chose to either donate their works or display, with a portion of any sales proceeds benefiting CoRR.

With our incredibly rich, diverse artistic community, we were fortunate to have begun a collection of exquisite art which is now on display throughout the facility. Current artists on display include Terry Juhl; Jim Lee; Sherry Dauphinais; Gretchen Davis; Michael Angell, and Vivien Kane.

We are honored and grateful to be able to display the talent of our local artisans and will feature an artist each issue. This season’s Featured Artist is Jim Lee who recalls painting for as long as he can remember.“As I grow older I feel more of a need to create my life through my painting. I’m putting more energy into my work making the paintings stronger, more exciting and fun. I’m concerned more with stronger color and composition than subject matter. Even though it has always been for my own enjoyment, painting is something I have to do. It may be because I’m not a verbal person. For me, painting is a more natural form of communication than words, and if I don’t paint, I get restless.”

Jim came to the foothills of central California after a 24 year journey from his birth place in Boulder, Colorado, that included stops in Japan, the Philippines, Hawaii, Guam, Alaska and various coastal cities in California and the Pacific Northwest.

He began surfing at age twelve while living in Ocean Beach, CA. in the late 50’s. Jim could be seen towing his Balsa wood board to the beach on a makeshift trailer hitched to his bike. Since then most of his travels have centered on chasing the perfect wave. Painting has always been an outlet for expressing the feeling surfing has brought. Along the way, he studied art at the Monterey Peninsula College, Portland State University, University of Guam, and four years at Sierra College, studying print-making with John Hamilton.

In an evolution he partially attributes to domestication (that entered his life as Jim and his wife, DeBora, raised their two sons, Arlen and Ross), his work has moved away from experimentation with abstract forms and heavy texture to focus on his impressions of Sierra Foothill landscapes and inspired surfing images. The personal and philosophical impacts that the two environments have on him are reflected in his work.
