• It feels different, not being numb is something new. I've never made it past 23 days.This place gave me strength and hope to carry on.

  • I think very highly of treatment, because you saved my life. Because if I would have stayed out there I would have died. But I think you guys did a great job, I had to re-learn how to humble myself even when someone is telling me something I don't want to hear. I learned how to teach myself to have my hope grow, and I learned it is all about one day at a time, and to have reasonable confidence.

  • Graduating from COMPASS is like having my own personal compass that helps point me in the right direction every single day.
    -- Male, age 42

  • The counselor assistants were great, and their groups were helpful. Treatment was wonderful, and it helped me a lot. I needed to hear the truth and look at things different. It allowed me to see reality in a way that I needed to see it. Treatment was not what I expected, I didn't think I was going to get a whole lot out of it, but I did.

  • Graduating from COMPASS is like having my own personal compass that helps point me in the right direction every single day.
    -- Male, age 42

  • I built myself up instead of relying on others to build me up. I don't have people around here putting me down.
    -- Female, age 47

  • Treatment was more then I expected. Everyone up here was really nice and helpful, especially the staff. I learned a lot about myself, and my addiction, and what to do when I get out of here.
    -- Male, age 21

  • One of the hardest aspects about treating addiction is that it is not one-size-fits-all. What makes COMPASS special is that treatment is individualized to meet the needs of each patient. This treatment helps patients see the beauty of recovery and helps them build a foundation for long-term recovery and personal growth.
    -- COMPASS Counselor

  • I feel COMPASS overall was a tool that I needed in order to get back on track to guide me in the right direction. I had lost my way, and I needed this. The staff they were inspirational, and they taught me a lot through their self-experience and from their training. I learned a lot from both those perspectives.

CCRS offers substance abuse and mental health treatment to residents of Lucas County and the surrounding area while promoting effective treatment methods and striving toward effective outcomes. The organization’s goal is to assist individuals and families in increasing daily functionality to live healthy and productive lives.


The evidence based treatment models utilized have been shown to be effective and match CCRS’ philosophy for assessment-based treatment.
