Special Message regarding COVID-19

OAR’s Leadership is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and taking recommendations from our Federal, State & local officials. As our country works to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we would like to share the steps OAR has taken for the Health & Safety of our clients and staff, during this unprecedented time.

Current Measures we’ve implemented:

  • Increased our cleaning/sanitizing efforts throughout our facilities – both Outpatient & Residential
  • Removed tables from our group rooms
  • Encouraging our staff & clients to practice Healthy Habits and social distancing
  • Encouraging staff & clients to stay home, if feeling sick
  • Cancelled our staff & Board meetings
  • Screening clients as they enter our facilities
  • Temporarily suspending outside visitors to our residential facilities

All OAR facilities will remain open as planned at this time.

Thanks for your patience as we navigate through this difficult time in our country.

This situation is continually changing. Please check our website or our Facebook page for agency updates during this time.

Help us connect people to the help they deserve

Nearly 23 million Americans were affected by drug and alcohol addiction in 2013. The vast majority did not receive the treatment they needed.1

90% of Americans with a substance abuse problem starting smoking, drinking or using other drugs before age 18.2

Last year in Ottawa County, more than 80% of all court-ordered treatment specified OAR.

Addiction isn’t a moral failure.
It’s a chronic disease.

And it can be treated. But unlike other chronic diseases, addiction still carries a stigma that is fueled by misinformation and blame. The result is a barrier of denial, secrecy and shame that comes between the individual and the treatment they so desperately need.

Addiction is a disease without boundaries. It touches every color, race, gender, religion, income, profession and social status.

Odds are, someone you know struggles with addiction. It could be someone you love. It could even be you. If it is, you aren’t alone. Each year, millions of Americans suffer from addiction, but the vast majority don’t receive the treatment they need. That’s why OAR is here.

More than 7 million children live in a household where at least one parent is dependent on or has abused alcohol.3

More than half of all adults have a family history of alcoholism or problem drinking.3

Addiction is a family disease. Even if the addiction isn’t yours, you can be part of the solution. Reaching out for help takes courage, but recognizing the problem and seeking help is the first step to hope and recovery. Take it.
