CODAC envisions a society where everyone lives healthy, productive and caring lives — positively contributing to their communities.


It is the Mission of CODAC to provide tools, support and services to individuals, families and communities so they may live with dignity, free from the harmful effects of mental illness, substance use disorders and trauma.
