One Day At A Time Recovery

Reverend Henry T Wells, Founder / Mel Wells, President

Founded in 1983 by Reverend Henry T. Wells, One Day at a Time Recovery, Inc. began as a residential peer counseling and substance abuse recovery support program. One Day At A Time Recovery, Inc. utilizes a community-based recovery model and support system, allowing people to recover in the same environment in which they became addicted. Recognizing that the addicted population suffers a variety of additional problems, over the past 25 years they have increased their scope and impact to address issues of HIV/AIDS and homelessness.

While residing in one of the many recovery houses, individuals are eligible to receive a menu of services via ODAAT’s many programs which can include; but are not limited to:
