“I took the time to participate in voluntary CoC program. It helped me realize that I had a substance abuse problem. Then the program built me up and I learned coping skills to deal with my triggers once they appear. Today I’m three years clean. I’m now focused on being a better person.”Dakota J., An Arizona CoC Success Story
