The path to recovery begins here.
Prevention. Treatment. Recovery. Support.
GCASA is open and providing treatment services in Albion and Batavia. Group sessions are cancelled, but we are still seeing individuals for individual counseling sessions or phone sessions. Please call your counselor if you have any questions.
When you or a loved one is affected by alcohol, drug or substance abuse, it can impact every aspect of life. Knowing who to turn to for answers is often the first step in getting help. We are the place where recovery can blossom and continue to grow. We are the place to turn when you don’t know where to turn. Take the first step by contacting us today, and we’ll be with you through every step thereafter.
GCASA believes there are many pathways to recovery. Peer Recovery Advocates are on call to help anyone struggling with addiction. GCASA’s peers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. If you are struggling or just need someone to talk to, please call 585-815-1800. If you decide today that enough is enough, call and a peer can meet with you where you are at and help you find your path to recovery.
The first line of defense against addiction is effective prevention services. Our programs are based in prevention science so we can provide the best possible outcomes. We also work with schools and community groups to assess and identify risks and improve prevention methods.
At GCASA, we recognize that addiction is not a choice — it’s an illness. That’s why our approach to treatment is based on years of medical research for the best possible outcomes. Every individual and every situation is unique, and so are the treatment programs we offer.
Addicted individuals are desperately searching for a way to reclaim their lives. Often that road is long and lonely, but it doesn’t have to be. GCASA’s residential care programs provide care in a supportive environment to help individuals in recovery find a brighter, healthier future.
