Community Education and Awareness

Education and awareness are crucial to fighting and preventing addiction within our communities. OAR provides a variety of presentations and customized training packages designed to address the needs of companies, agencies, nonprofit organizations and churches throughout our West Michigan communities.

Our expert staff has undergraduate and post-graduate teaching experience and knowledge of substance use disorders and addiction, as well as mental health issues. At OAR, we welcome the opportunity to speak to your group or business about topics related to addiction and recovery. Our presentations and training can be customized according to the interests and needs of your organization. We can come to your location or we can host your group at one of OAR’s locations, whichever is most convenient.


At OAR, we are dedicated to preserving our community-oriented status. Our philosophy is to remove barriers for those in the community who need our help. Local support from individuals, churches, businesses and foundations enable us to maintain our independence and respond to all appropriate requests for service. For those who qualify, we offer a sliding scale based on factors such as household income, family size and residency. We will not deny services due to an inability to pay. You must present proof of income and meet the residency requirements to utilize these funds. OAR accepts Medicare, Medicaid, self-payment and most commercial health insurances.
