To provide the highest quality of care possible to people who are suffering from substance use disorders or co-occurring mental health disorders in an environment that preserves and promotes the dignity of the persons served without regard to race, color, creed, gender, economic or social circumstance, sexual orientation, or national origin.
To be reposed to the ever changing and dynamic needs of our community environment to treat and prevent the diseases of addiction and drug abuse through services to all people, with programs and services that improve the quality of life of the individual and our society.
Located in historic East Jackson since 1964, JACOA provides inpatient and outpatient programs licensed to treat individuals with substance and/or alcohol use disorders as well as
co-occuring mental health disorders. Upon successful completion of treatment, JACOA offers both men and women's transitional and permanent housing.
"Everyone here, including clients, worked together. We lifted each other up, and built bonds strong enough to allow support long after treatment. I love this place, and will definitely miss the staff."
"It saddens me that I have to leave this place. If not for JACOA, I could have been dead by now. They have opened my eyes to a new life, and a new way of living and I plan to keep it."
"I LOVED this place - Thank you for everything JACOA!"
