Who are We?

Our Mission

Our Vision

C.A.R.E.S. (Community Advocacy Recovery Education & Support) is a community-based, proactive, drug & alcohol awareness group in Wayne County, PA. This group consists of people in recovery from substance use, family members and friends of those in recovery, as well as, community-minded individuals such as teachers, clergy, business owners, and other professionals, or anyone who believes that there is a solution to the drug and alcohol problems in our community and that there is HOPE for recovery.
Although some of our members are also members of 12-Step Support Groups & Fellowships, C.A.R.E.S. is not affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Nar-Anon, or any other fellowship.
Members of C.A.R.E.S. do, however, respect and support the principles and traditions of these fellowships.
