About Us

Here, we grow stronger,  gain support and new skills, and help one another stay in recovery.

The center is named in memory of Jeffrey Dallas Gay, Jr, who died of an opioid overdose. His family has championed support for recovery in our community so that those suffering from substance abuse disorder can live long and fulfilling lives.
