About Us

C.A.R.E. for Dodge County, Inc. (Community Awareness and Recovery Environment) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was created to bring awareness, prevention and education to the community of Dodge County about the disease of addiction by connecting resources and creating a recovery environment for those affected.

Our mission is “Empowering Families Choosing a Life of Recovery”. Our organization would like to bridge the gap between addiction and recovery and build a recovery environment to support those in recovery.

C.A.R.E. for Dodge County, Inc. was founded because our families were affected by addiction and our community lacked the vital resources necessary to assist individuals in finding a pathway to recovery.

We encourage a myriad of pathways to recovery by offering an array of support groups. As a proponent of building recovery environments, we additionally host several sober events that help individuals restructure their lifestyles.

We have implemented the ED2Recovery Program with local hospitals where-in a Recovery Coach is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to individuals whom have been presented to hospitals with addiction issues. The coaches advocate for those choosing a life of recovery and support their loved ones in the process.
