The History of CCAR
CCAR was founded in 1998 when Bob Savage, a long-time state employee, set out to answer two questions:
- How can we help you with your recovery today?
- Can the recovery community be organized?
Many years later, thanks in large part to his early vision and dedication, the organized recovery community is at the table (locally and nationally) and our presence is growing. In the early years, CCAR focused solely on advocacy and because of the influence of the recovery community, then evolved into providing recovery support services. More than twenty years later, its amazing to see how far CCAR has come.
